I have been making this every year since it's original publication in Country Woman. It is a Christmas standard at our house. It is outstanding in flavor, impressive in presentation! I have had MANY requests for this recipe. This is SO good and easy to make. The photo is helpful in understanding assembly directions too. Don't wait for Christmas to try this!
Simple yet impressive and just as good, if not BETTER than, any expensive cream cheese danish or coffee cake offered at the store! Instead of milk for the glaze, I used maraschino cherry juice which gave it more flavor and also made it pink, which added to the presentation-all who tried it really liked it! Also, I made two and froze one-tastes just as good! I did not used almonds on the top-didn't have any. Nice balance of cheese, cherry and almond-not one favor overwhelming this pastry.
