Brown Sugar Cheese Danish, so easy to make, so good to eat!

Brown Sugar Cheese Danish-start with puff pastry then fill with a brown sugar cream cheese filling, bake then drizzle with glaze, an easy breakfast treat!

A few weeks ago I shared with you this Brown Sugar Cinnamon Fruit Dip. It’s amazing. I can eat it with a spoon. I make the kids use fruit when they want to dig in, but me, I’m mom, I can use anything I want to get some of this stuff. You know how it gets, you can only eat so much of a good thing and then…enough. Around the fourth batch, the kids, well, they’d had enough. And I’d just made a new batch, for them!

I love Puff Pastry. So easy to use, makes simple recipes seem fancy. I always have a box or 3 in my freezer. Kinda like butter, I don’t like to be without it. Perfect for a quick, looks like I slaved over it, made from scratch (we know I didn’t but don’t tell) treat. Sweet or savory, it’s always able to deliver.

This recipe is so simple I hate to call it a whole post. But it’s too good not to share. My kids wanted to know what the occasion was for having these. I told them just because I thought they were worth it. And by the way, would you mind picking up your rooms before dinner?

I loved having their rooms all picked up without having to nag.

Brown Sugar Cheese Danish

Brown Sugar Cheese Danish


  • 1 sheet frozen puffed pastry
  • 1 bar (8ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk or cream


  1. Defrost puffed pastry on a lightly floured cutting board. Once thawed, gently roll with a rolling pin, just to stretch dough a bit. Cut dough into 6 squares. Transfer squares to parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. Prepare filling-combine cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread filling down the middle of your pastry, between opposite corners.
  3. Fold empty, naked, the corners that don't have spread on them, into the center, just overlapping. Use just a dab of water to "glue" the corners together. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Combine powdered sugar and milk/cream, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over pastries. Serve warm. Store in air tight container in the refrigerator.

    these look wonderful! I’ll have to make them soon! I just recently found your blog and I love it! Thanks for sharing all of these great recipes. I saw that you are from Georgia and we just moved to W.R. Georgia a few months ago. It’s such a small world. At least I know I’ll be able to find the ingredients to your recipes at the local stores! Thanks 🙂 Jen

    • Jen, we’re back door neighbors! I’m in Byron. Yes, the Publix, Kroger and Walmart I shop at are all in WR! Depending on where you moved from, you will find we are lacking in many ingredients. I moved here 15 years ago and there are still a few thing I wish the stores carried. So glad to meet you!

      So glad to meet you too! We moved from a very rural area in SC, so having a Publix nearby is quite a luxury! I’ve also discovered AJ’s cake supply shop and I love it! My email is: if you ever need a taste tester! LOL! Jen

    Where is the cheese in Brown Sugar Cheese Danish??

  30. These look great!! Do you think you could use Pillsbury Cresents? Or would they not have the same effect??

  31. sally ambrose says:

    Sorry, what is powdered sugar?? Is it like icing sugar? Where can I find it in Australia? Love your recipes. thanks

  32. Is powdered sugar just everyday white sugar?

  33. This looks delicious! It’s too bad I don’t have time to get to the grocery store to buy the puff pastry, it would take at least 30 minutes to get there and back. I will make and fill crepes with this instead.
