Easy Cherry Cream Cheese Danish

Easy Cherry Cream Cheese Danish 1


  • Ready made Puff Pastry (1 sheet)
  • Cherry pie filling (or fruit of choice)
  • Cream cheese mixture:
  • Half block of cream cheese (4oz)
  • 1Tbs sugar
  • vanilla extract (few drops)
  • lemon juice (just a splash)
  • Soften the cream cheese in the microwave for 10 seconds and mix in the sugar, vanilla, and lemon. The amounts are really just to taste.
  • Drizzle icing:
  • 1cup of powdered sugar
  • 2-3tsp orange juice or until you get the right consistency.


I cut the sheet of pastry into 9 squares. Then spread the cream cheese mixture on a diagonal. Added a few cherries… And pulled the opposite corners up and pinched them together. Brush with a bit of egg wash and bake at 400-425 until golden brown, about 15 minutes in my oven. Pour a cup of coffee and enjoy. These would be great for a brunch table, too!
