Ingredients for the Danish:
- 1 can of refrigerated crescent rolls.
- 1 can of blueberry pie filling; you will not use all of it.
- 4 ounces cream cheese; softened
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Ingredients for the Glaze:
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tsp. milk
After you open the crescent rolls up, do not separate or unroll them. Keep them in a “roll” or cylinder and using a serrated knife, slice into about 12 individual slices or circles.
Make an indentation in the middle of each slice of crescent roll. You can use your thumb or the back of a small spoon.
How to Prepare the Cream Cheese Filling
Make sure the cream cheese is soft before even beginning this step. You can remove it from the refrigerator an hour before you’re planning on making this recipe.
Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together until smooth.
Place a spoonful of cream cheese in the center.
Now add a spoonful of blueberry pie filling or whatever flavor you’re using. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 – 20 minutes.
After they bake, let them cool for a few minutes before drizzling with the yummy glaze.
