Raspberry Lime Cream Cheese Danish


  • 2 Tubes crescent roll dough
  • 8 Oz mascarpone cheese
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Pints fresh raspberries
  • 1 can of key lime beer (such as Monday Night Brewing key lime beer) OR 1/2 cup of sugar + the juice from 2 limes


  • Soak the raspberries in the beer overnight. Alternatively, soak the berries in sugar and lime juice overnight. Drain the juice and reserve for a glaze, if you wish. 
  • Remove the crescent roll from the tube. Do not unroll. Slice into 1 inch rounds. Using your thumb, press down the centers of the crescent roll rounds - much like you would with a thumbprint cookie. 
  • In a bowl, combine the mascarpone with the 4 tablespoons of sugar. You can add a splash of lime juice if you like, but not necessary. Fill the crescent roll centers with the mascarpone. 
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 14 minutes.
