THE INGREDIENTS LIST:

FOR THE DOUGH, I USED:

2 cans.Of refrigerated crescent roll dough.

FOR THE CHEESE FILLING, YOU’LL NEED:

8-oz.Of cream cheese, softened.

1/3 Cup.Of granulated sugar.

1 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.

1 Tbsp.Of all-purpose flour.

A Large egg yolk.

FOR THE GLAZE, YOU’LL NEED:

1 Cup.Of powdered sugar.

1 to 2 Tbsp.Of milk.

1/2 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

Fruit preserves (such as strawberry or raspberry).

Chopped nuts (such as almonds or walnuts).

Powdered sugar for dusting.

PREPARATION:

1st Step

Set your oven’s temperature according to the instructions on the crescent roll dough package. Use parchment paper or gently oil a baking sheet to avoid sticking.

2nd Step

Combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, flour, and egg yolk in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Combine all of the ingredients by beating them together. Dedicate a separate space for.

3rd Step

Unroll the crescent roll dough from its cans and place it on a flat, clean surface. Cut the dough into triangles by separating it into holes.

4th Step

Spread the broad end of each crescent roll triangle with a heaping scoop of the cheese filling. Roll the dough gently from the broad end to the narrow end, tucking in the edges to make a pocket for the filling as you go. And then arrange the crescents, filling side up, on the baking sheet.

5th Step

Bake the danishes for 12 to 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and puffy, according to the directions on the crescent roll dough container. Watch them carefully so they don’t become too brown.

6th Step

To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla essence in a small dish and whisk until smooth; set aside while the danishes bake. To make a glaze that is easy to pour, adjust the consistency by adding additional powdered sugar or milk.

7th Step

After the danishes have cooked and cooled somewhat, using a spoon or a piping bag, sprinkle the glaze over the top of each pastry. Spread some fruit preserves on top of each Danish and sprinkle with chopped nuts or a light dusting of powdered sugar for more taste and aesthetic appeal.

8th Step

Warm or at room temperature, the Homemade Crescent Cheese Danishes are delicious. While best eaten the day they are baked, these danishes can keep for up to two days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container.
