Confession time!

I’m such a huge fan of refrigerated crescent roll dough. I use it in crescent rings, it makes my Grilled Cheese Bacon Crescent Squares a breeze, and um – can you say fried dough & cheese in these Grilled Cheese Fries? Yummm!!

So, quite understandably, I’m totally loving these delicious Berry Cream Danishes.

Literally, you can have fresh berries & cream danishes on your table in under 20 minutes flat.  Couldn’t be simpler – seriously.

I love this recipe.  My kids love this recipe too – and it’s something they can easily make too.  When these come out of the oven, they disappear fast!  You can make them without the icing drizzle too – but why would you?

These little gems are delicious – so quick & easy you can even make them fresh on a busy weekday morning.  What a treat@

Here’s what you need:

Easy Berry Cream Danishes

Unroll the crescent roll dough on your countertop that you’ve lightly dusted with flour to keep it from sticking. Roll it out a little bit to get it to hold together.  If you don’t have a rolling pin, you can also use a can from the cupboard in a pinch if need be.

In a bowl, beat together 8oz of softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar & 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until creamy.

Ingredients:

  • For the danishes:
  • 1 tube refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1 8oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons strawberry jam/jelly (or substitute your favorite jam)
  • flour for dusting

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons milk (or more if needed)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Unroll the crescent roll dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll it out a bit just to hold it together & thin it out a bit. In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, & vanilla extract. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crescent roll dough. Spread the strawberry jam over the cream cheese. Roll up from the long ends into a tube shape. Press the ‘tube’ with your hands to tighten the interior. Slice into 1 1/2 inch rounds. Place in a mini muffin pan that’s been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Beat together the glaze ingredients. Drizzle on top of the warm danishes & serve immediately.
