Tasty Tuesdays: Homemade Cheese Danish

Hello friends, and happy Tuesday! Hopefully, you're ready for another easy and delicious recipe to try with your family this week. Since I featured a savory recipe last week, I thought I'd share a super easy and delicious recipe this week.

My sister-in-law shared a great-looking and sounding recipe for a yummy breakfast or brunch. My hubby is a huge fan of cheese danish, so I knew I had to give this a try.

Homemade Cheese Danish Recipe

Here's what you'll need for the danish:

2 cans ready to use refrigerated crescent rolls
2 (8-ounce each) packages cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg white

Optional Glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

*Note- I cut the recipe in half and made an 8x8 dish, instead of a 9x13 dish.

Use 1/2 of the crescent roll dough in the bottom of the pan...

Preheat oven to 350* degrees and grease a 13X9-inch baking pan. Lay a pack of crescent rolls in the pan and pinch the openings together.

Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg together until smooth. Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls evenly.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough...

lay the second pack of crescent rolls on top of the cheese mixture and brush with egg white. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the top is golden brown. Top with glaze after cooling for 20 minutes.

Add second crescent roll dough layer and brush with egg whites...

We decided not to make the glaze. My husband thought it would be too sweet, and he might have been right. If you want to add the glaze, go for it! I'll bet it's delicious! Though this tasted great warm from the oven, we found that we actually liked it better at room temperature, after the filling had really cooled and solidified a bit more. It was even better the next day!

This danish is so yummy!

The danish was nice and flaky on outside, and sweet and creamy on the inside. We might try it with puff pastry the next time we make it, but as I explained to my hubby, we're probably all more likely to have crescent rolls on hand. I know that I have started keeping them in the 'fridge because little B really likes them.

Light, flaky- and definitely a crowd pleaser!

This a wonderful recipe to keep in your arsenal for a quick weekend breakfast, to serve for a special brunch, or to make and have ready to serve to drop-in guests!

  3. My Husband and | Both Love cheese Danish! This recipe is so simple and looks so good I just have to try it! I too would leave off the glaze. I also feel it would be too sweet. I guess you could just drizzle on a little. Maybe that's what I would do. I have to pin this to my Board..Thankyou for sharing! :0)
