Almost Cheese Danish Turnovers

"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."

Ready In:
2 turnovers




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

    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


<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste &amp; appearance; directions were clear &amp; easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;</p>
