Raspberry Cheese Danish Recipe

Your guests will think you made these yummy rolls from scratch...or bought them from a specialty bakery. No one needs to know the recipe calls for refrigerated dough! —Karen Weir, Litchfield, Connecticut
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1 can (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 teaspoons 2% milk


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar until smooth. Unroll crescent dough and separate into four rectangles; seal perforations. Cut each rectangle in half, making eight squares.
  • 2. Transfer squares to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture diagonally across each square. Top with 1 tablespoon jam. Bring two opposite corners of dough over filling; pinch together firmly to seal.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Combine milk and remaining confectioners' sugar; drizzle over pastries. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.
