Serves 20 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 20 to 25


2 pkgs. of cresent roll dough
2 8oz. pkgs. of cream cheese (low fat works too)
3/4 c. of sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
Optional: 1 can of pie filling, any flavor, I like cherry.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spray the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

Unroll one package of the cresent roll dough in the bottom of the pan. Pinch seems together.

With a mixer combine cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla.

Take 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture and spread it on the cresent roll dough in the pan.

If using a can of pie filling, spread filling evenly over cream cheese.

Top with remaining cream cheese mixture, spreading over the pie filling.

Unroll remaining cresent roll dough and place on top, pinching seems together.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes until dough is golden brown.

Refridgerate after cooling.

My good friend at work, Kim, made this for me to take to a retirement party because I had to work late and didn't have time to make anything. She said she had this cream cheese danish recipe and she would make it so I wouldn't have to stop at the store and buy something to bring. It is delicious and I had to have the recipe. I brought it to the Pennsylvania Cookover and everyone there loved it too, so I had to share. Enjoy!!

I have made these and they were a huge hit. Every one gobbled them up!

Thank you for posting this. We really enjoyed it at the PA Cookover and I imagine I'll have a request to make it this weekend.

This was so yummy! I can't wait to make it!
