These don't have the yeasty Danish dough but are good for a quick treat.

I have been making these since 7th grade home-ec and let me tell you I am drooling right now thinking about them. I don't like plain biscuits but these are so buttery and sweet they are the perfect combo. The only difference is I have never made them with cream cheese and probably wouldn't since it adds fat and it is still good without it. Now I can keep this recipe here instead of my 7th grade cookbook LOL!

This is not a "danish" and it does not taste good. It does not have a natural developed yeast flavor like the regular danish rolls. It is an biscuit overload with sugar and fat . Honestly, I'd rather to have regular biscuits. Sorry.

Loved the flavor of these. I used a variety of preserves. The cherry were really delicious. I'll make these again for a special treat.
