Easy Cream Cheese Danish

I had not made this recipe is a really long time and don't really know why. It is actually really simple and does not look like it. My type of recipe. The kids were so excited to actually have dessert. Don't look at how awful my baking stone looks. It is quite embarrassing! The crescent rolls did not come out of the packaging very well. I had to piece together a couple of triangles and the spokes were harder to create because of that. It still tasted good though.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish
2 packages of refrigerated crescent rolls
1- 8 oz. package cream cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 can pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread 12 triangles of rolls into a circle on a baking stone or pan.

Make a three inch hole in the center. Roll up the center and outer edges to make a small border.

Mix cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. Spread over the dough to with in 1/4 inch of the edge.

Top with pie filling.

Cut the last four crescent triangles each into 3 pieces.

Arrange pieces in a spoke like fashion on the top. Press ends to seal.

Bake 25-30 minutes until lightly brown.

Then mix:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2-3 tsp. milk
Mix until sugar is dissolved and it is smooth. Drizzle on the top of danish.
Let frosting set up and Enjoy!!

I used the silver end of the crescent roll packaging to cut the center hole. Then I rolled up the ends.
I also made my pie filling with some blueberries we picked this summer.

  1. What a WONDERFUL!!!! and EASY!!! way to make a BEAUTIFUL!!! danish.
    I love a cream cheese filled danish.
    Have a GREAT!!! Thanksgiving.

  2. What a wonderfully easy pastry. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Have a great holiday.

  3. Oh wow. I always have biscuit dough and the like laying around during the winter. I generally just end up making them as verbatim biscuits and throwing it next to other food as just kind of a 'oh I have to add some form of bread gragh!' moment.

    If I end up thieving with love this recipe later in the winter when all I have is biscuit dough, cream cheese, and frozen fruit, I'll make sure I drop you a line. Thanks for the great idea. Might make this on purpose too. This is so

  4. What a fun danish to make and I like the fact that I can whip this up in a moments notice.

  5. This looks yummy. I don't know if I have the spatial skills to arrange my triangles to get the circle though. Maybe I could just plop it down in rectangles instead?

  6. This looks delicious and easy. Plus it is pretty!

  7. Great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I just wanted to let you know that the link is up already for this week's Crock Pot Wednesday. I thought an early post would be better for Thanksgiving week. Thanks for joining in last week.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
