4 Ingredient Mini Danishes

4 Ingredient Mini Danishes

These little danishes are my 7 year old son’s favorite thing right now.

You only need 4 ingredients to make them – and a can of crescent rolls is the key. You don’t even have to separate them into triangles, y’all… that’s how easy it is!

Just unroll the can of crescent dough & slice into rounds. Place on a baking sheet – press a little indention in the center with your fingers… fill with cream cheese filling, bake, & DONE!

FYI – if you want to make a from scratch danish instead – I’ve got a great recipe for those too! You can view it by clicking here.
