Raspberry and Cream Cheese Danish


 Yea!  My waterfall is running again and I'm so happy to hear the soothing sound of it for my tea in the garden.  Please join me for a raspberry cream cheese danish, won't you?  I've made some Constant Comment tea and a new method for iced tea, which I'll share below. 


 I've shared this teacup that my sister gifted to me before, and it's so pretty with the two shades of blue and the toile design inside the cup.  


 A friend gave me this Jim Shore Angel of Hospitality.  I thought she would make a pretty centerpiece for my tea.  The creamer was a souvenir from the Biltmore, when my Late Beloved and I visited there.  

I sandwiched this pretty doily that I won from Nancy at Two Cottages and Tea, several years ago, between two glass Ikea plates.  I love how you can change up the design of a plate like this. 

Now, this recipe is one that Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage shared a few weeks ago.  Sandi made a Peaches and Cream Danish, which you can find here.  Sandi got the recipe from Martha, at Lines From Linderhof.  I happen to love anything raspberry and decided to use my homemade raspberry jam for these danishes.  I already had a can of crescent rolls, but Sandi and Martha both used the Grands Crescent Rolls.  Here's the recipe, if you'd like a nice, tasty, pretty treat:

Raspberry and Cream Cheese Danish



1 Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (Sandi used the Grands Crescent Rolls)
Raspberry jam (or any jam or pie filling that you like)
4 oz. cream cheese 
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 TBSP sugar

powdered sugar
milk

Chill the roll in the freezer for about thirty minutes. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Beat together cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until smooth. Crack open the tube of crescent rolls and slice the crescent roll in its original form, like slice and bake cookies. I got eight out of the roll. (Sandi got 10 out of the Grands Crescent Rolls). Put them on cookie sheets and use the bottom of a small glass to make an indentation in each one.  Put some of the cream cheese mixture into the dent and then add a dab of jam on top.  Bake about fourteen minutes and then cool completely. 

Beat together a little powdered sugar with a bit of milk to make enough to drizzle on the danish.  

Double the ingredients for a crowd pleasing treat! 

 I used this itty bitty measurer to make the indentions.  



Here are the danishes right from the oven and before being drizzled.

 

 

When I was at the hairdresser's this past time, I picked up a copy of Martha Stewart Living magazine and took a picture of this method of making iced tea.  It works out great and is the perfect temperature for me, as I don't like  icy cold drinks.  Be sure to add extra ice, if you do!

I am  sharing this with:

  3. A pretty tea table as usual and I'm happy to see your waterfall running too! Easy enough to do for the danishes and I may just make some when it's my turn for goodies at bible study.

  6. Kitty, hope you enjoyed a special Mother's Day weekend. The sound of the water running is soothing for me as well. We can hear the birds chirping and the fountains spilling into the pool below from our sunroom. A beautiful way to start the day. '-)

    I love water running too, I have a river near by and the sound is just as lovely and soothing, specially at night. Thanks for the yummy recipe.

  8. Hi Kitty,

    These look delicious and so pretty, too!! I'm pinning the recipe (as usual). :-D I love the teacup from your sister (toile is my favorite) and the creamer from Biltmore is charming! I would love to sit outside with you and share a cup of tea while listening to the running waterfall.

    Thanks for sharing with us and have a wonderful day!

    Warm hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  9. Your Hospitality angel is super cute, Kitty and she certainly suits you. Your Danish looks wonderful and I love how simple this recipe is. I will be making it when my family is all home this summer because they make a lot especially if you use the two cans. I do love the teacup from your sister. I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day weekend, my friend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  14. I've always admired your blue striped and polka dot teacup. I also really liked how pretty the doily looks between the two glass plates. Thank you for sharing the iced tea recipe. I'll have to try this method next time I make some iced tea.

  15. Dear Kitty:
    I think I would love some of those for breakfast in the morning. Would you mind bringing some over? Just kidding of course but they do look amazing. Thanks for linking and sharing.

  17. Your danish looks quite easy to make and I too would love the raspberry.
    Happy to see your beautiful waterfall running, Kitty. It makes a great back drop for your photos.
    Lovely way to dress up your clear dishes.

  18. Your Jim Shore angel is beautiful! I love his work. A friend gave me a Jim Shore Christmas ornament, but I would love to collect his angels. Thanks for the deliciously easy Danish recipe! I've been looking for one that's easy to make. God bless you with a happy Spring.

  19. Your iced tea recipe will be used by me! When I lived on North Carolina, they would offer water or iced tea so I would most always choose the iced tea. I hardly drink it these days! Your Jim Shore angel is beautiful Kitty, and the Danish looks like it came from a bakery. I save many of your recipes, so thanks!

  20. Thanks for the quick iced tea method Kitty! I missed this tidbit in my MSL magazine. Your Danish looks delicious and so easy too. I'm glad you are able to enjoy your working fountain again! There's nothing more soothing than the sound of water and I bet the wildlife loves it too. ♥

  21. I love Danish..and yours looks amazing.
    We have a little water fall, from the hot tub into the pool, and it is such a fun sound...glad your fountain is working again.

  24. This is such an enticing & EASY recipe, Kitty! I must invite some friends over to share them soon. I don't dare make them until others are coming, as I'd eat every single one!
    I have a friend who orders her tea like that, fresh brewed with a tall glass of ice on the side. She doesn't like fake instant tea mixes (me neither) so this is how she gets her iced tea when dining out. Thanks for sharing the pretty photos...I love your Jim Shore Angel of Hospitality...it is SO YOU!!!

  25. Kitty, your tea look so pretty. I'm glad you got fountain going again, and I'm sure it adds to the peacefulness in your pretty garden. I love the teacup and saucer-so jaunty!The raspberry danish looks to die for! My favorite idea in this post is the Ikea plates with the doily. That is really a great idea, and one that I want to try for sure. Have a wonderful week!

  27. YUM! I've never made a danish and I used to love them during business meetings when I was working - it's been THAT long since I have had one. This is an awesome easy recipe, one I truly need to try. Thanks Kitty.

    You've made a lovely teatime. Hugs and love. ♥

  34. Love the sandwiched plates with the lace- cute idea! The angel is sweet. Those Danish have my attention- not too hard to make which is what I like and they look delicious! That looks like a good way to make ice tea. Remember when "solar" tea was popular- I still have my big jar to make it which I haven't done in too long.

  35. Good Morning Kitty!
    Well, I am easing back into the world of blogging after my little break and time spent with family. It was great, but I have missed you all.
    I am sitting here wishing that I had one of those raspberry cream cheese danish right now with my coffee.
    Such a sweet table setting and I have a Jim Shore Angel too:)
    Great to see you here with us at Thoughts Of Home On Thursday!

  38. Wonderful Kitty! I love your polka dots, and the doily sandwich is such a good idea! I love Constant Comment tea as well. The recipe looks wonderful. And I did make the cinnamon chocolate scones, but next time will reduce the cinnamon just a smudge. Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  41. Kitty, I sometimes drop a sliver of ice even into my hot tea so I can drink it immediately! My mother thinks that is a terrible thing to do to tea but I do it anyway! Another secret ~~ I LOVE those crescent rolls for a treat, and now with your additions I think they will be extra special! Eating them at your lovely table with the angel watching and the soft sound of the water would be quite enjoyable. Linda

  42. Kitty I thought for sure this was going to be a time consuming recipe but I cannot WAIT to try it. Oh how about a lemon curd center? Thank you so much for linking up to Thoughts of Home on Thursday. You make our gathering a happier place.

  43. So happy for you to be able to enjoy your waterfall. I am sure it is a wonderful spot to sit at and enjoy your tea. Such a wonderful Angel figurine, tea cup and your tea time snack looks delicious.

  44. How lovely to have a waterfall in your garden. Yes, it is a relaxing sound. Homemade raspberry jam is a real treat on a pastry. Lol, I also find myself taking photos of recipes while at the hairdresser or dr's office. I wonder if the ice tea recipe could be made with teabags instead of loose tea. Thanks for sharing. Jill
