1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  2. Lay a pack of crescent rolls in the pan and pinch the openings together.
  3. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg together until smooth.
  4. Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls evenly and then lay the second pack of crescent rolls on top of the cheese mixture and brush with egg white.

Side Notes:

  • You can make this danish using low fat cream cheese and splenda (sugar substitute) and it's delicious!
  • Original recipe calls for makes a VERY heavily filled danish. You can halve the filling using 1 package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 whole egg, and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract - still very good. If you use the half filling method, bake for closer to 30-35 minutes.

I have made this several times. use the Philadelphia Cream Cheese Filling. It is just as good if not better than mixing filling and a lots quicker easier.

do you have to roll out the dough or will it expand while baking?

30 minutes was too long to bake these, at least in my gas oven a dark metal pan. They didn't burn but they did get brown. The next time I will try baking them for 25 instead.
