These delightful Danish from Margaret McNeil are so quick to fix, you don't even have to uncoil the refrigerated breadsticks. "We prefer them with cherry pie filling, but you can use peach or blueberry instead," suggests the Germantown, Tennessee cook.

"These little danishes were very good. I used the round crescent rolls and used jelly instead of pie filling. They were delicious. Definitely a keeper. I highly recommend this recipe as a volunteer field editor for Taste of Home."

"My son had lemon danish at his friends house and loved it. I was only able to find them at a local Super store but they came in a variety pack. Since he only liked the lemon I started my search for an easy recipe. I used this recipe and substituted lemon curd in place of cherry pie filling. What a hit and I could not believe how quick and easy this recipe is. I also made another variation with cream cheese and guava. Another big hit."

"This is a versatile recipe that I have made so many times. My husband's boss LOVES these. I also do a cream cheese filling. Try filling 4 with cherry filling, 4 with cream cheese filling, and 4 with blueberry filling for a special Fourth of July breakfast. Laurie Rysta"
