Reviews forCheese Danish Dessert
"I've been making this for many years, for family, friends, and office breakfasts. I double the recipe and bake it in a 9"X13" pan, one rolled out tube of dough on the bottom of the pan, then the filling covered with the other rolled out tube of dough, brushed with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. This is quick and easy to assemble and always delicious!"
"Wow, I really liked this recipe. My family loved it. Prolly wouldn't make too often. I did a few things different. I used 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 1/4 cup. And I used 2 cans of crescent rolls instead of 1. The cream cheese mixture is more than enough to fill 2 cans of crescent rolls."
"These danish are easy to make and taste wonderful. The first time we had these, my family was staying at a Bed & breakfast in Annapolis, Maryland. I always hoped I would find this recipe someday. The B&B owner delivered these warm right out of the oven every morning. With a hot cup of strong coffee, these danish were a great morning treat. Both my husband and daughter love them as well. Thank you for submitting this recipe!"
