Cream Cheese Danish



    • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls or seamless dough

for the icing

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk


  1. Stir together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Set aside.
  2. Remove crescent dough from packaging. Do not unroll. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 sections, about 3/4 inch thick. Place dough sections on a parchment lined or lightly greased baking sheet. Create an indentation in the center of each dough section for your cream cheese mixture. I use the bottom of a shot glass, lightly floured.
  3. Place 1 rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture onto each dough section. A small cookie scoop works perfectly.
  4. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 14-17 minutes, until dough is golden brown.
  5. While danishes are baking, create your icing. Combine powdered sugar and milk until completely smooth. Drizzle over warm danishes.
