Cream Cheese Danish


Afternoon! I just got off the elliptical and am contemplating a run as well. I am so unmotivated right now! I thought while I contemplated I would share a recipe with you. I made this for breakfast Christmas morning and we ate it and drank mimosas. it was fabulous! This can be served hot or cold (I like it better hot!)

Cream Cheese Danish


-2 cans crescent dinner rolls

-1 and 1/2 cups sugar

-1 tsp vanilla flavoring

-2   8 oz packages of cream cheese (I use reduced fat)

-1 egg

-1 cup chopped pecans

-1/2 stick butter


preheat oven to 350.

spread one can of dough in greased 9 x 13 baking dish, pressing together seams and pushing to corners of pan.

Mix cream cheese, 1 c sugar, egg, and vanilla until a spreading consistency.

Spread mix over rolls.

Open second can of rolls and put on top like you did the first.

mix rest of sugar and pecans and sprinkle over tops.

Melt and drizzle butter over sugar and pecans.

Bake at 350 for 25 min or until golden brown.

I did pecans on half in case someone didn’t like or want nuts.

    It’s ironic that Christmas morning was the only time we didn’t do a real brunch… just leftovers/make your own (we were in a hurry to open presents and then be off to the family gatherings!).

    Cream cheese… my friend introduced me to a new dip that uses it. The dip may or may not be life changing. Sigh…

    That looks so good! I make eggnog waffles for b’fast on Christmas morning. This year, however, I made pumpkin waffles b/c I ran out of eggnog. :-O

    I always make overnight french toast for Christmas breakfast. This year it was extra yummy because I used cinnamon swirl bread from Great Harvest. Beyond amazing.

    This sounds freaking amazing. If I had not made the can of crescents tonight, I so would have done this in the morning. I wonder if I could halve the recipe with my one remaining can of crescents…?

    I’ve made a recipe very similar to this and then you cut the whole thing into bars and serve them that way. My office calls them “crack bars” because they are like crack they are so good!

    I love that recipe too! In my hometown they call it “Sopapilla Cheesecake” (what can I say, Oklahoma is sort of close to Texas???). I have never put nuts in it before though- I will have to try it.
