Table of Contents
- This recipe uses 2 tubes of crescent roll dough. You need to use crescent rolls and not the crescent roll sheet dough.
- The wide end of the crescent rolls should be overlapped while ensuring the pointed ends are pointed outward, resembling a starburst. The inner cavity of the dough circle should measure approximately 4 inches in diameter.
- It's important to work with cold dough to maintain its flakiness. Make sure to refrigerate the crescent roll dough until you're ready to use it.
- If you find the dough is becoming sticky when you're piecing it together, you can quickly place it back in the refrigerator to chill it again.
- Don't be afraid to get creative with your fillings! Try different combinations like lemon pie filling, cherry compote, or even chocolate-hazelnut spread.
- To prevent any leaks or spills during baking, make sure to seal the edges of the crescent roll dough securely. This will help retain the filling and maintain the shape of your Danish.

- 2 (8 ounce) tubes refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
- 1 (21 ounce) can raspberry pie filling
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk or heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Unroll the crescent dough and separate the triangles. On a large baking sheet or round pizza pan, lay out the crescent rolls in a circle with the points of each crescent roll triangle pointing outward. The wide ends of the triangles should be overlapping and forming a 4 inch wide circle in the center.
- In a medium mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar together with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in ½ teaspoon vanilla extract.
- Scoop the raspberry pie filling onto the circle of the crescent roll ring. Dollop the cream cheese mixture on top of the pie filling.
- Bring the points of the triangles of the dough up over the filling and tuck under the inside of the circle to form a large crescent ring. The filling will still be visible between the crescent rolls.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 20 minutes on the baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, heavy cream, and the remaining ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, adding just 1 tablespoon of cream at a time until the glaze reaches your desired consistency (just thin enough to drizzle). Drizzle the glaze over the cooled crescent ring.
- Other pie fillings can be used in place of the raspberry, such as apple, cherry, peach, or blueberry.
- I only used about ⅔ ove the can of pie filling. You can use the whole can or less, depending on your preference.
