I am trying to cook my way through the all my food pins on Pinerest and this is one of the recipes on my Breakfast/Brunch board. The recipe I pinned was for blackberry cheese danish and although I like blackberries, I like blueberries better so I just switched the berries. In fact, I think almost any berry would work in this recipe.
This recipe came from the blog Lauren’s Latest, which is a really cute blog with some delicious recipes ~ check it out! She has step-by-step pictures, too.
Easy Peasey Blueberry Cheese Danish
1 tube crescent rolls or 1 tube crescent dough
1 (8-oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsps flour
1/2 pint fresh blueberries, washed and dried
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsps heavy cream ~ more may be needed to get the right consistency
1 splash vanilla
Preheat oven to 375º.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla and set aside.
Unroll the dough on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roll out the dough and place squares in a row lengthwise. Pinch the perforations together to form one sheet of dough.
Spoon the filling down the center of the dough leaving about an inch on both ends of the dough. Sprinkle blueberries over the top of the filling.
Make cuts on each side of the dough so the strips are about 1/2 inch in size.
Fold an end over the dough and start braiding the dough as you go down. Tuck the other end of the dough under the strips as best you can.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the dough is golden and filling hot.
Let the danish cool. While cooling, mix the icing and then drizzle the icing over the top. Sprinkle extra blueberries over the top if you have them.
Makes 8 servings.
