🥢Substitutions

  • Blueberry pie filling can be used in place of the blueberry preserves.
  • Fresh blueberries can be gently folded into the softened cream cheese before spreading it onto the crescent rolls.
  • Almond extract can be used in place of vanilla extract.
  • Heavy cream is a great replacement for milk when making the icing. The glaze will be a little thicker and will not drizzle as easily as icing made with milk but will have a richer flavor.

🍽 Equipment

🍱Storage

To keep your crescent rolls from drying out, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container or use a heavy duty freezer bag.

Frozen blueberry and cheese Danish rolls can be defrosted in the refrigerator and should not be frozen for more than 2 to 4 weeks.

💭Top tip

These are best served and enjoyed fresh from the oven.

Easy Blueberry Cheese Danish on plate with icing and fork
Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:25 mins
Total Time:35 mins

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 16 ounces refrigerated crescent rolls 2 can -8 ounces each
  • 8 ounces blueberry preserves

Icing

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a small bowl beat together softened cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice.
  • Separate crescent rolls into 8 rectangles and press the perforations to seal.
  • Spread each rectangle of crescent roll dough with 1 heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Firmly pinch edges and ends to seal. Don't push too hard or the cream cheese filling will pop out!
  • On an ungreased cookie sheet, coil each roll into a circle with the seam side down. I made mine first on a cutting board but it would have made much more sense to shape them on the baking sheet instead.
  • Tuck the end under.
  • Make an indentation in the top and fill with a teaspoon of the preserves.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.

Glaze

  • While the danishes are baking make the glaze.
  • In a small bowl mix the powdered sugar and vanilla adding the milk until the glaze is of drizzling consistency.
  • Drizzle over each freshly baked blueberry danish.
