I love danish for breakfast...or a snack...really aren't they good any time of the day!?! If you like...or love...danish like I do then you will love this super easy recipe. It is really nice to make because it truly can be popped out in 30 minutes...crazy awesome for a nice piece of yummy danish!
This is also a super star recipe in my book because you can totally change it up, and I love the change up. Cream cheese danish not your thing? Then, maybe you want to dollop some cherry pie filling or lemon curd in the centers to make a different, just as yummy in my eyes, danish! I love them all, what can I say, I am an equal opportunity danish eater!

Breakfast Danish -print this recipe HERE-
2 10 oz cans of refrigerated crescent rolls
1 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp sour cream
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp butter, softened
1 -2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp almond extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and sour cream...set aside. Open your cans of crescent rolls and DO NOT unroll. Slice the "tubes" of crescent rolls into 1/4 inch disks. Flatten and place on your prepared jelly roll pan. Indent the center of each disk with your finger and place a dollop of the cream cheese mixture on it. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until just starting to turn golden. Let cool on a cooling rack.
While cooling, make your icing. Mix the powdered sugar, butter and 1 tbsp of milk together. Slowly, add a little bit more milk until the icing is thick but runny in consistency...make sense? Once danish are cool, drizzle with icing...Mmmm, the BEST!
First, mix up all the ingredients for your cream cheese middles and set aside.
Keep your crescent rolls in the tube shape they come in and cut into 1/4 inch disks.
Then just flatten each disk and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
I just used the CLEAN palm of my hand but a rolling pin is a nicer option...yup, I admit it, I'm lazy!
Dollop the centers with your cream cheese mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes...mine were ready at the 17 minute mark.
Hmm...these need a little something...
So let's mix up the powdered sugar, softened butter, almond extract and 1 tbsp of milk...
Add just teeny additional splashes of milk until you get a nice runny but thick icing consistency...
And drizzle over your danish once they are cooled.
Uh huh, that looks better!
Now, wasn't that Easy!?!
And remember, be nice...don't forget to share!!
