The older I get, the more I appreciate EASY. This is easy. Refrigerated dough and just a couple more ingredients let you make wonderful Danish in a hurry.

Change Serving Size
  • add   4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • add   2 tablespoons sugar
  • add   1 tablespoon flour
  • add   1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • add   1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • add   1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • add   1 pkg (12 oz) crescent-roll dough
  • add   1/2 cup strawberry jam (or any other flavor)
  • add   1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • add   1/4 cup sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. In small bowl, blend cheese, sugar, flour, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla until well blended and smooth.
  2. Heat oven to 375. Unroll crescent-roll dough and separate into three rectangles. On a lightly floured work surface, cut each rectangle in half crosswise, making 6 squares. Pinch together the perforations so no one will know you cheated. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture diagonally onto center of each square. Top with about 1 tablespoon of the jam. Fold one flap across mixture. Fold other flap across the first flap. Brush Danish with egg-water mixture. Sprinkle with almonds.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

You could easily double the recipe. Also, if you wanted smaller Danish you could use the 8 oz pkg that has four sections in it.
