Strawberry Cheese Danish


   My hubby is a HUGE fan of Cheese Danishes. Me, not so much. Until I made these babies! I remember when Kale and I were dating, he told me about a place that sold his favorite Cheese Danishes. It was up in Veyo, Ut. It's a tiny little town about 20 minutes north of St. George. One day my sister had to go up there, so I decided to tag along with her and grab one of these 'amazing' danishes to surprise Kale with! I was so excited! I returned back to his house and handed it to him!  He looked at me like I was crazy.

"What's wrong?" I asked.
"This isn't the right one." he said.
"What? I got it at that market in Veyo."
He replied, "This is a packaged Danish I can get anywhere!"
"Oh."  Silence...

   So low and behold, I had accidentally bought him the wrong one. I guess in that market, there's fresh homemade danishes that they sell there, but me being Miss. Dumb Blonde, bought him a packaged one that was next to all the Hostess stuff! lol
Hey, It's the thought that counts! Right?


Strawberry Cheese Danish
Recipe By: Pillsbury
  • 1 tube (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 8 teaspoons Strawberry preserves
Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

   Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Top each coil with 2 teaspoons preserves. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or golden brown.

Barefeet In The Kitchen said...

What a great story. I love it. These look like they turned out perfectly.

The Bennett Bunch said...

I just got these out of the oven and mine do not look like yours! Did you spread the rectangles out a bit so they were a little stretched out? I did not do that and I think I should have! I think they will still taste good, though. :) I have filled crescents before and I should have known to do it. Thanks for all the awesome recipes. I am a HUGE fan of cheese danishes!

Andrea said...

My husband is also a huge danish fan. I am going to have to surprise him and make these this weekend. Thanks for sharing. So happy to be your newest follower. check out my blog when you have a chance.

Tiffany @ Fizzy Party said...

Brenda Vo said...

I looked at the recipe on phillsbury.com and the measurements were different compared to the one you posted. Did you modify it?

Linda N said...

I just made these quick this morning for my husband, it's our 9th anniversary today, he absolutely loved them! The only thing I changed, is I used strawberry pie filling instead of jam!
