Easy Cheese Danish

The Easy-to-Make Cheese Danish that's perfect for any day of the week from cupcakesandcrinoline.com

A good cheese danish is hard to beat.  I really like the cheese danishes at Panera’s…and most any bakery around….I rarely turn my nose up at a cheese danish…I’m somewhat addicted to them.  I, however, do not have the desire to make homemade pastry and concoct a filling that would take hours so instead I opt to make this easy (when I say easy I mean EZ) cheese danish.
