Cherry Cheese Danish

Here is a quick Sunday breakfast I like to whip up before going to church. I created it when trying to duplicate a favorite Danish from the bakery where I worked. We like to prepared with apple pie filling, too. -Melanie Schrock Monterey, Tennessee

    My youngest, cherry loving son declared this a "keeper"! So easy to make though I did not use canned frosting for the glaze. I made a glaze with powdered sugar and milk.
