I have been making these forever and everyone always loves them. I love how easy they are to prepare.


These sound delish! I love cream cheese danish.


What an easy homemade danish! Will definitely try this out!!


Really like the blog, appreciate the share!


Just made these...didn't have the ingredients for the filling so I just put a dollop of raspberry jam in the middle, they were delicious!

I've been making a version of these for years. I think they are delicious! I like the cherry pie filling or either cherry or strawberry preserves.
Thanks for reminding me about these -

Paige hofmann

what size cans did you use? ( like how many crescent rolls were in each)


making these now. Pillsbury now has the seamless crescent roll dough. Bought some last night!


I made these for breakfast this morning. My husband and sons want them for every Sunday breakfast.

I just made these for the first time this morning. They are fabulous! Thank you for posting the recipe....it's a keeper!!


ok so i made these last night and they tasted really good..but looked absolutely nothing like the picture lol not really sure if i used the wrong crescent rolls or something .. they just looked like bite size flat crescent biscuits with a ball of filling on top lol when they came out of the oven i had to smoosh the filling down lol...any advice for next time?...


Shelly, I'm assuming you unrolled the dough. The directions say to slice the ROLL into 1/4 inch pieces. DO NOT UNROLL. They should have a swirled appearance like a cinnamon roll, I'd say. Hope that helps!


Keep the crescents rolled up and cut with dental floss to keep the discs nice and round. I used some leftover cream cheese filling for cupcakes that had mini chocolate chips and (thawed) frozen raspberries mixed in, and drizzled them with dark chocolate ganache, also leftover from the cupcakes.


Is the amount of sour cream correct? Just one TEASPOON??


They now make ROUND crescent rolls, which made my life even easier! I can't say how the recipe is yet, but they're in the oven and the filling was so easy to make! :D Can't wait to taste it!


HOLY COW! My two girls and I hurt ourselves eating these. A win at my house! I didn't have lemon juice, so I substituted lime and I made the mistake of adding 1 tbsp of sour cream, but they were still delicious! SO GOOD! I'm going to make these a lot!


These were amazing! I made some yesterday and took them with me to a brunch and everyone loved them! Thank you for posting this recipe. These will definitely be making a reappearance at our house!


You had me at cream cheese! I would ignore lemon and add cinnamon instead. Everything is better with cinnamon!


These are awesome and so easy to make! I had leftover filling and I just added confectioner sugar and vanilla for the icing! Thank you for sharing.


I would recommend cutting them in 1/2 in. slices, instead of 1/4 in. I left mine rolled up and I would have to agree with the commenter that said they looked like "flat discs". Since I cut them in 1/4 in. slices like the directions said, it also only took 1 can of crescent rolls.


Thank You for this recipy. I will definately try this. You cannot get cream cheese danish in South Africa. They have no idea what I am talking about. Now I can make my own. YAY!!!!!! Now I must just get a recipy to make the cresent roll dough. We cannot buy it canned.

I followed this recipe to the "T" so to speak and my end result looks nothing like the picture. The crescent rolls need to be sliced at least 1/2 inch thick, I would even go to 1 inch to even come close to looking like the pic. And the drizzle was so thick you couldn't spoon or pipe it over anything. The drizzle needs at least twice the amount of milk and butter to come close to a drizzle or glaze. Very disappointed with this recipe.

These are amazing! And they are upper easy to make! Thanks for posting this!


Thank you all for posting after you made them. The suggestions are helpful. Just saying yum doesn't tell you if the recipe works or not.


I just made these and they turned out great! I cut the recipe in half as there are only two of us. I cut mine into approx. 1/4 inch slices and they rose up fine. If you are judging by the picture, and have an image in your mind of large store bought danish, then yes, you will think 1/4 inch slices don't look like the picture. Its an extreme close up, with nothing in the background for perspective. (a great picture btw!) These are 2-3 bite danishes, and we loved them! Since they ARE small, next time I will add a teaspoon of the pie filling on top of the cheese filling after cooking, before icing them.
