Almost Cheese Danish Turnovers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

Adapted from a Sara Moulton recipe, this isn't a bakery Danish but hey, what do you expect in 30 minutes or less using sliced bread? ;-) For me, it's another toaster oven opportunity.

I liked the taste, but I'm not sure if I would make them again. I wasn't crazy about the texture of the filling, but that is just a personal preference. Please make them yourself and form your own opinion :) I don't think they tasted at all like a danish. Also, there was too much filling that popped open the bread during baking, as you can see in the photos. Made for Newest Zaar Stars Tag Game. Linda

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Roll out bread with a rolling pin until flattened to about 1/16 of an inch.
  3. Stir together both cheeses, sugar and cinnamon until smooth.
  4. Brush some of the butter on the edges of the bread.
  5. Mound one half of the cheese mixture in the middle of each piece of bread.
  6. Fold over the bread to form a triangle and enclose the filling. Pinch the edges of the bread firmly together to form a seal.
  7. Arrange in one layer on a small baking sheet and brush the top of each turnover with the remaining butter.
  8. Bake the turnovers in the middle of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pale golden.
