Easy Cheese Danishes-so simple to make and so delicious!
I’m sure I’ve mentioned my middle child a few times before. She’s the picky eater. The one that doesn’t want fruit or veggies unless forced. (She has gotten better with age.) But when I made this amazing Braided Raspberry Cheese Danish, she wanted nothing to do with it. She took one look at the red raspberries and walked off.
Not wanting her to be completely left out. I decided I needed to make something similar for her. But I didn’t want to make a whole danish. Honestly, I love my sweets but I try to moderate how much I have in the house at one time.
And then I had a brain storm. That little lightbulb over my head went off. It was a blinding light.
It was so simple. Just make her plain cheese danishes.
Cute, individual danishes that you could grab and eat. No fancy presentation. No spending extra time preparing everything.
These sweet little things took maybe 5 minutes to put together and get in the oven. My secret trick-use the bottom of a shot glass, lightly floured to make the indentation for the cheese mixture. I used a small scoop for the cheese mixture and done!

- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls or seamless dough
for the icing
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- Stir together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Set aside.
- Remove crescent dough from packaging. Do not unroll. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 sections, about 3/4 inch thick. Place dough sections on a parchment lined or lightly greased baking sheet. Create an indentation in the center of each dough section for your cream cheese mixture. I use the bottom of a shot glass, lightly floured.
- Place 1 rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture onto each dough section. A small cookie scoop works perfectly.
- Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 14-17 minutes, until dough is golden brown.
- While danishes are baking, create your icing. Combine powdered sugar and milk until completely smooth. Drizzle over warm danishes.
