For the Danishes:

  • 2 packages refrigerator Crescent Rolls
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner. Set aside.
  • Roll out the crescent roll dough and press together the perforated seams. Cut it into four squares. Do this with the other package of crescent rolls as well so you have 8 total squares.
  • Place squares on lined baking sheet and roll up the edges to form a well in the middle for the cream cheese filling.
  • In medium-sized mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and mix until combined and creamy.
  • Fill each pastry cavity with the cream cheese mixture. Using the back of a spoon smooth it out so it covers the bottom of the cavity and touches the rims of the danish.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool.
  • While the danishes are cooling, mix the glaze. In mixing bowl combine confectioner’s sugar and milk until smooth.
  • Drizzle on top of cooled danishes.
