  • 1 package of crescent rolls You can use frozen as well but make sure they are thawed before use. The recommended one is Pilsbury for the perfect taste
  • Flour 1 or 2 tbs for dusting


  • Cream cheese 4 ounces
  • ¾ cup powdered/granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla splash
  • 1 can of cherry pie filling


  • granulated sugar to sprinkle on the Danishes
  • 3 tbs milk


  • Now, it is time to prepare this sweet and candied dish. Take out the crescent rolls and unroll them. With a knife carefully cut them from the middle to make 15 slices.
  • Now, put them on the parchment paper. Make sure that the paper is greased before adding the slices.
  • You can use any measuring cup or a small saucer to press the rolls for a flat shape. Make sure to create walls with your hands so the filling remains inside.
  • Now, sprinkle flour on the sheet and over the rolls so they don’t stick.
  • Now, take a beater and mix soft cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla splash.
  • After preparing it carefully add small amounts of the mixture on each Danish. Make sure to do it nicely as you do not want to overdo it.
  • Now open the can and add 4 to 5 cherries according to your liking.
  • Put them in the oven and bake them for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degree.
