Cream Cheese Danish
When I first started cooking a very long time ago, I remember making danish.
I found my old recipe that was yellow and tattered and made them for breakfast.
This is too easy.
The dough is two cans of crescent rolls
One 8 ounce room temperature cream cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Roll out the crescent roll dough and pinch all the perforated lines together
Cut into 9 equal squares
Mix the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and sour cream till smooth.
Place a tablespoon of filling in the center of each square
Fold the two opposite edges together and pinch closed
If you want to add jam this is the time to do it.
Make a little indentation where you pinched the dough together and put a small 1/2 teaspoon of jam on top
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until the bottoms are brown.
You can also frost the danish but I usually keep them plain.
Thats it .
A fifty year old recipe that hasn’t changed.
