Cream Cheese Danish

 
 
For tea  today, I've used the cupcake teapot that my dear sister gifted me, and used it with my polka dot plate and cup and a polka dot napkin from fabric a had in my stash.  I've used some grocery store daisies inside a pretty basket.



This Cream Cheese Danish is a family favorite that I've been making for years.  You can double this recipe and use a 9 x 13" baking dish for a larger crowd.  The only thing is, if you double it, there's no need to use 2 eggs.  The recipe goes by many other names, but whatever it's called, it's quick, easy and delicious!

Here's the small version:
Stackedcup-1_thumb
1 tube crescent rolls
1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I always use "light")

Topping:

1 egg white
1/4 cup sugar
StoneGable1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans or almonds are good)

Lay 1/2 of  the crescent rolls flat into an 8 x 8" pan.  Mix the vanilla, sugar and egg yolk into the cream cheese.  Spoon this mixture over dough.  Lay remaining 1/2 of the crescent rolls on top.

Whisk egg white; brush over dough. Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the egg white.  Sprinkle on the chopped nuts. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  Makes 8 slices.

I am sharing this with:

  3. How wonderful Kitty! I'd love to make it, but there are no tubes for crescent rolls around here. My mom used to make so many things out of the rolls, specially on weekends! Wish I had one of yours right now with a cappa coffe! Have a great week sweetie.

  10. Kitty, hubby is always so tempted by the ones in the store and they always taste bland and like preservatives. This one is so easy and quick. I know hubby would think I was the bomb if I made these for him.
