Easy Cheese Danishes

Want to make homemade cheese danishes, but don’t want all the work? I’m right there with ya. These easy danishes use a shortcut (crescent roll dough) so you get the favorite bakery pastry with very little effort.


For the danishes:

  • 2 (8 ounces) tubes crescent rolls
  • 8-ounce package of cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • 8 Tbsp light brown sugar

For the glaze:


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (F). Combine softened cream cheese, white sugar, and vanilla extract in a medium mixing bowl until smooth.
2. Make eight rectangles out of the crescent dough (there will be two crescent rolls to each rectangle.) Perforations in the seal
3. Spread melted butter all over the crescent rolls with a brush or a spoon.
4. 1 tbsp. brown sugar sprinkled over each rectangle
5. Roll up the crescent rectangle from the long side, pinching the sides to seal.
6. Coil each loosely while holding one end.
7. To create room for the filling, spread out the dough in the middle a little.
8. Place on a cookie sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. 2 teaspoons cream cheese filling on top of each coil
9. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 350°F, or until golden brown.
10. To make the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk in a mixing basin. Drizzle over each warm danish after stirring until smooth.
