Cherry Danish


When I was a kid there used to be this company that made these cherry Danish packs that were so good. I didn’t get them often, but every once in a while, I’d be able to get one. I loved it. I stopped seeing them in my teen years. When I met my husband, he took me to Georgia to meet his mother. Lo and behold….we stop at a gas station and there they are. I bought 5 of them! I ate every single one of them too. That was 12 years ago. I’ve never seen them again. That was so sad to me. I was really excited to try this recipe. It was fantastic! It’s sweet, and perfect. I know that others will love this too.

1 roll crescent rolls

flour, for dusting

4 oz soft cream cheese

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 can cherry pie filling

1/3 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons milk

Open container of rolls. Leave rolled and cut roll into 10 slices. Lay slices on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten each roll. Build a small wall around the edge. Use a little flour to prevent sticking to fingers. With a mixer mix the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Dollop onto each roll. Add a teaspoon of cherry mix. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes on 350 degrees. While baking combine the milk and powdered sugar. Stir. Let danishes cool and glaze.
