Ingredients For easy cheese danish

  • 2 can
    crescent rolls (8 count)
  • 8 oz
    cream cheese
  • 1/2 c
  • 1 tsp
    lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp
  • 1 tsp
    sour cream
  • 1 c
    powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp
  • 1 Tbsp

How To Make easy cheese danish

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350. Place a sheet of parchment paper on cookie sheet or baking pan.
  • 2
    Open the crescent rolls carefully so as not to tear the dough. Do not will need to leave it in it's cylindrical shape. Slice the dough into pieces about 1/4 inch thick (as though you're slicing cookie dough).
  • 3
    Place the slices on a cookie sheet. Now press the center in to make an indentation for the cream cheese filling.
  • 4
    In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese, regular sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and sour cream
  • 5
    Add a dollop of the mixture to the indentation you made in each circle of dough. I find that about a tbsp works well, but you can use as little or as much as you like
  • 6
    Bake for 15 - 20 minutes. While the danish are baking, you can make a quick royal icing to drizzle over the tops
  • 7
    Take the danish out of the oven and allow them to cool for 10-15 minutes before icing
  • 8
    Glaze: Mix together the confectioner's sugar, milk and butter in a small bowl. Use a spoon to drizzle it over the tops of the danish, or you can put it into a small zip-top bag and snip of the corner for an easy "piping bag."
