1 tube of regular crescent rolls

1 – 8 ounce package cream cheese (softened)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

1/2 cup to 3/4 cup cherry pie filling

1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 oz. cream cheese (softened)

1 tablespoon butter (softened)

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons milk or water


1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

2. Lightly spray a large rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

3. With your mixer, beat together an 8 ounce package of cream cheese with granulated sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth.

4. Unroll a seamless dough sheet onto the baking sheet. With a rolling pin or glass roll and stretch dough into a 12' long by 6' wide rectangle.

5. On each long side of the dough, make 2 inch long cuts about 1 inch apart using a sharp knife, pizza cutter, or kitchen scissors.

6. Spread the cheese filling down the middle of the dough.

7. If adding fruit, spread about 1/2 cup (or more if you wish) of cherry pie filling on top of the cheese layer.

8. Starting at one end, fold the strips over the filling on an angle alternating from one side to the other. This will give it the braided look.

9. Brush with beaten egg white if desired

10. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the Danish is golden brown.

11. While the Danish is baking, make the icing. In a medium sized bowl whisk together all ingredients

12. Allow the Danish to cool for 10-15 minutes before drizzling the icing over the Danish.

13. Cut into slices and enjoy!

Bon Appetit!
