Today I'm sharing a delicious and easy blueberry cream cheese danish recipe. For this recipe I chose blueberry pie filling, however, you can use any flavor of fruit your family loves.
How cute would it be to make cherry and blueberry for the 4th of July holiday weekend? Or use just cherry to celebrate Christmas!
Recipes Using Crescent Rolls
I love to use refrigerated crescent rolls to create easy, semi-homemade recipes, desserts or snacks. You really can make anything with a tube of dough!
You might want to double this recipe because these blueberry danish do go fast! Seriously, every time I make these they disappear really quickly from the buffet table. So do yourself a favor and double the recipe.

- Parchment Paper Sheets - I love using these sheets!
- Serrated Knife - this knife works best for slicing the raw crescent rolls.
- Tart tamper - this tool is so handy for so many recipes! Not only do I use it to help press dough into the bottom of a cupcake pan like my mini quiche recipe, but it's great for making the indentation in the center of these crescent roll danish rounds.

- Refrigerated crescent rolls.
- Blueberry pie filling; you will not use all of it.

- Powdered sugar
Baking Tip: You will not use all the pie filling for this recipe. You can use the leftovers to serve over homemade pancakes!
Step 1: How to Make the Crescent Dough Rounds
Open the crescent rolls up, however, 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.
Step 2: How to Make the Indentation
Step 3: 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.
Step 4: How to Fill the Danish
Place a spoonful of cream cheese in the center being careful not to overfill them.
Now add a spoonful of blueberry pie filling or whatever flavor you're using.
Step 5: Baking Instructions
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes or until the crescent rolls are lightly golden brown.
Step 6: Prepare the Powdered Sugar Glaze
Combine the glaze ingredients together in a bowl. Drizzle the glaze on top of the slightly cooled danish, serve and enjoy!
