Easy Cheese Danish

Sure, once in a great while I may be selfish and cook something I know Handsome won’t touch with a ten foot pole, but sometimes I see a recipe that’s all for him and I rush to the kitchen to make it. He works all day (usually outside on the hottest days or up on a roof in the coldest) and doesn’t always stop to eat anything nutritious so dinners at night aren’t about the blog, they are about feeding him well to make up for the long day.
In the morning we both don’t often stop for breakfast but he has been guilty for falling for the buy one get one free Entenmann’s danish from time to time. Ever wanted to know why you don’t let your other half go to the market alone when your the one that does the cooking? Yeah, that’s why.

So here’s a much more cost efficient semi-home made version that you can whip up in a few minutes and have ready fresh every day to prevent drive-by snacking from your local Quicky Mart.

These quick and simple cheese danishes looked perfect. The used up some Pillsbury crescent dough that I knew I bought for some reason and are fairly easy to adapt to any taste by adding berries, lemon or apples on the inside or on top while cooking. I only used one tube and made four knowing we wouldn’t eat them quickly, but if you were in a pinch and needed to wow those unexpected guests, these would go a long way with minimum effort.

    I’ve been meaning to bake up some cheese danishes. I found a similar recipe a little bit ago that I keep putting off. Now I may need to make them after seeing these.

    I’m just learning how to bake, so dough and I arent too close yet….however, THIS I know I can do! Maybe add a little lemon zest somewhere? On top? Mmm…..

    i’ve never used the store bought Crescent Rolls but your danishes look pretty darn good. I love a good cheese danish. I should make some soon, just bought some vegan cream cheese yesterday …

    That is really interesting…would never think to use crescent rolls, but it looks like it was a winning idea for sure. I can’t resist cream cheese…it’s kinda bad haha
