An easy last-minute recipe to serve for breakfast on Christmas morning is this delicious Christmas tree cream cheese danish. Your family is going to love this!
  • 2 cans of refrigerated crescent rolls.
  • 8 ounces cream cheese; softened
  • 1 can of cherry pie filling
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
For the Glaze:
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. milk
  1. Combine the glaze ingredients together until smooth and set aside until the danish is baked and cooled.
  2. Open the packages of crescent rolls, but do not separate them. 

  3. Using a serrated knife, slice each "roll" into 11 equal pieces. 

  4. Arrange the crescent circles into the shape of a Christmas tree.

  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.
  6. Using your thumb or the back of a spoon, gently indent the middle of each circle so there is a space for the cream cheese to be placed inside. 

  7. Place a small spoonful of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each crescent circle.
  8. Then place a small spoonful of the cherry pie filling on top.  You will not use all the cherry pie filling.
  9. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes.
  10. Let cool and drizzle with the glaze.
