  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

Step 1

Stir together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Set aside.

Remove crescent dough from packaging. Do not unroll. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 sections, about 3/4 inch thick. Place dough sections on a parchment lined or lightly greased baking sheet. Create an indentation in the center of each dough section for your cream cheese mixture. I use the bottom of a shot glass, lightly floured.

Place 1 rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture onto each dough section. A small cookie scoop works perfectly.

Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 14 to 17 minutes, until dough is golden brown.

While danishes are baking, create your icing. Combine powdered sugar and milk until completely smooth. Drizzle over warm danishes.
