    ms_bold's Note:

    Small danishes that make a great addition to a brunch buffet. You can also make fruit and cream cheese danishes by adding a spoonful of your favorite pie filling prior to baking. There are never any leftovers when I make these.

      Very, very easy and they turned out so cute! (Cute? Is food supposed to be cute? Well, these are!) I think next time I will put the crescent dough in the freezer for a few minutes after unwrapping it, to firm it up and make it a bit easier to slice, especially on a warm day. I also know now to use an electric mixer for the cream cheese blend; doing it by hand wasn't enough to really whip it up and smooth out the sugar grains (though it still tasted great!). Also be sure to make pretty good size indentions; I had a few that were too shallow and the filling slipped off when the dough rose during baking. (Oh rats, had to just eat those myself when they came out! ;o) I did have filling left over, much to my daughters' delight, so you might even be able to spread the filling out across 2-1/2 or 3 cans of dough. These were great in spite of me, lol, and are definitely going in my list of quick and tasty treats for brunch, coffee hour, overnight guests, holiday trays, or just 'cause. Can't wait to try them with fruit filling!

      Made these for our annual Worship/Breakfast in the Park where we serve a simple Continental breakfast after worship. Wanted something easy to make and easy for people to pick up and enjoy. They were so easy to make, and I made lots of variations ... peach, black raspberry, apple and cheese. The only thing I learned along the way, and modified, was the 1/4 inch slice. My first couple of batches resembled cookies more than a danish. A little heftier slice produced a nice, raised danish. Super easy ... very good!

      I just tried this recipe and the cream cheese filling was amazing! I've always hated crescent rolls so I pulled the dough recipe from another source and just used the cream cheese part from this one. I tried a couple of other cream cheese filling recipes before and this is definitely the best one!
