Last week, my husband invited a business associate over for coffee and dessert... The problem? I had no dessert and they would be here in an hour. Ugh. The solution... these quick and easy Danish Rolls. Oh my goodness... they are good!

And the best part is that you can use any flavor of cream cheese and pie filling that you have on hand.

Give it a try and see just how good and easy this is! Use your imagination and take advantage of all of the wonderful, flavored cream cheeses and pie fillings that are available.
