Strawberry Cheese Danish

So danishes are one of my weaknesses whenever I stay in a hotel and have breakfast there.  When I saw this recipe it immediately stuck out to me.  Here is what I would do differently: I don't love strawberry jam, especially when it tastes fake!  So I would do just cream cheese or use blackberry or blueberry preserves--but that's just me! 

Strawberry Cheese Danish


Strawberry Cheese Danish

·                     1 tube (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
·                     4 ounces cream cheese, softened
·                     1/4 cup sugar
·                     2 tablespoons lemon juice
·                     8 teaspoons Strawberry preserves
·                     1/4 cup powdered sugar
·                     1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
·                     2 teaspoons milk
Directions:  Seperate dough into four rectangles. Seal perforations. In a small bowl whisk together cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Spread 1/4 of the mixture onto each rectangle. Roll up from long side; pinch edges to seal. Holding one end, loosely coil each.
   Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Top each coil with 2 teaspoons preserves. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or golden brown.
   For glaze, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over each danish. Makes 4 danishes.
