Cheese Danish

Ann Simmons


These are great for breakfast or anytime!
To dress up your cheese danish, mix together 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar and 1 to 1 & 1/2 Tbsp water or milk, until it will pour easily, and drizzle it over danish in any desired design.
For a different flavor, use canned apple pie or cherry filling over the cream cheese filling or leave out cream cheese filling and just use pie filling.
