"I reviewed these Danish previously as "xicota", but have changed my name since that time. These rolls are very tasty and we enjoy them. I wanted to mention that I found the two tablespoons of lemon juice made the cream cheese mixture quite thin--runny. I would start with one tablespoon and add more juice if necessary. :-)"

"I've made these Danish three times already, and they are soooo good! Mine didn't look quite as perfect as the photo, but nevertheless, they were enjoyed immensely by my family and myself. I have also used apricot and raspberry preserves with excellent results."
