How to Make Easy Fruit and Cheese Danish(Crescent Roll Dough)


    Unroll crescent dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Do not separate but pinch seams together to form a rectangle.
    Cut 1/2" "arms" along both sides approximately 1 1/2" inwards.
    Mix softened cream cheese with sugar and 1/4 tsp vanilla.
    Spread cream cheese filling down center, and then spoon a thin line of pie filling down the center of the cheese.

    Gently pull dough strips from each side up and over top of filling, just crossing in the middle.
    At the ends fold the strips upward a bit to seal ends.
  3. BAKE:
    @ 375 for 15-20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

    Mix the powdered sugar and cream/milk and 1/4 tsp vanilla to form the glaze.
    Drizzle back and forth over warm danish.
    Cut and serve.
