How to Make Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Danishes
I love these so much because of the simple recipe. All you need is a can (or two) of crescent rolls. Roll out the dough and spread a layer of butter and brown sugar on top of the dough.
Cut the crescent rolls into thin slices, press the dough out, fill the dough with cream cheese and fruit spread, and bake! Top with a lemon glaze (optional) and enjoy! Sure you could go through the trouble of making a crust from scratch, but if you only have a few minutes to whip something up, using crescent rolls is a HUGE time saver (plus, no mess)! 😉
How to Make Cream Cheese Filling for Danishes
This is my go-to cream cheese filling for almost any recipe! It’s SO simple! The perfect mixture of cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla will add so much flavor to these danishes! Plus, if you put the cream cheese mixture into a ziplock bag and then cut a tip off the end, it’s super easy to pipe into the center of the danish!
How to Make Lemon Glaze
Lemon glaze makes everything better! I am a HUGE fan of everything lemon (as you probably can tell by my blog name). A burst of lemon flavor can really take a recipe to the next level! All you need to make Lemon Glaze is fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar! If you don’t want a strong lemon flavor, but just a hint, mix lemon juice and water! These Lemon Cupcakes and Lemon Cookies also have an amazing Lemon Glaze!

How to Store Crescent Roll Cream Cheese Danishes
My favorite way to eat these is straight from the oven, so your best to only make as many as you need. The crescent roll is flaky right out of the oven and then tends to harden after it’s been put in the fridge. If you do have leftovers and want to store them, place them in an airtight container and in the refrigerator. Since this recipes contains cream cheese, you will want to store them in the fridge!
Can You Freeze Cream Cheese Danishes?
Freezing these Cream Cheese Danishes isn’t something I’ve tried yet, but it’s worth a shot! You could freeze them in an airtight container and freeze them for a month or two. Once you are ready to eat them, thaw them in the fridge over night and then warm them up in the oven.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! It’s the perfect Party Brunch or holiday Breakfast Recipe!
