Easy Cream Cheese Danish

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chellerific

A close family friend made this for every potluck--it's easy for company, and they will be begging for the recipe. This is also good with fruit pie filling as a third layer. (Just use white sugar instead of cinnamon sugar!)

Yum! We love crescent rolls and cheese danish, so this was clearly gonna be a hit with us. I made mine with peach pie filling too. I did find that I needed to tent it with foil near the end of the bake time, because the edges were baking up much faster than the middle (mine needed an extra 5 minutes for the dough in the center to bake enough). I really enjoyed the amount of filling in this, because usually you just get a little blob in the middle -- this had filling through and through. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2013
