• Cooking Time: 20-25
  • Servings: 10-12
  • Preparation Time: 15



  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tube of crescent rolls (original flavor)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla frosting (I used Betty Crocker), for the icing on the cheese danish


  • In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and flour. Set it aside.
  • Line a baking pan with tin foil, grease it, and set it aside.
  • Unroll the crescent rolls, leaving the crescents in rectangles. On the greased baking pan, lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise.
  • Press the edges together to even them out and seal any holes.
  • Cut 1/2 inch wide diagonal strips on each side of the dough.
  • Spread the cream cheese filling down the center of the dough, leaving 2 to 3 inches on either side.
  • Fold the 1/2 inch wide dough strips up and over the filling, alternating sides so it looks like a braided pattern.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the filling is set and the dough is golden brown.
  • Let the danish cool on the baking pan (about 15 minutes).
  • In a small bowl, microwave the vanilla frosting for 15 to 30 seconds and drizzle the icing over the danish and serve.
  • Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
