Cream Cheese Danishes

I love cream cheese danishes!
We have a local bakery that makes them
and they are divine, but they are 
a pretty little penny too!
This weekend I stumbled upon a blog
after my own heart!
I love to cook,
I love to make homemade stuff for my family.
I'm a Georgia girl born and raised
and I like honey or butter on my biscuits!
So when I found this blog that has so many
yummy southern inspired dishes
I was so excited!
So while browsing all the great recipes
on her blog I found an easy recipe for
cream cheese danishes. 
I've never had the courage to make them
because, unlike my sister, I am more of
a cooker than a baker... if you know what I mean.
But the recipe looked so simple so I tried it,
and they turned out super yummy.
So I am going to share Brandie's recipe
with you here.

For the danishes:
2 tubes Crescent Rolls
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese (softened)
¼ cup granulated white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. butter (melted)
8 tbsp. light brown sugar

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)

In a medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese with white sugar and vanilla extract.
Mixture should be creamy and smooth when finished (like cheesecake batter)

Separate dough into eight rectangles. Seal perforations.

Using a brush or spoon, spread melted butter all over crescent rolls. Sprinkle each rectangle with about 1 tbsp. of brown sugar.

Roll up from long side; pinch edges to seal. 

Holding one end, loosely coil each.

Now you want to get in there with your fingers and spread out the dough some to make room for the filling. 
Just pull and stretch and make a nice dent in the middle.
Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.

Top each coil with about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese filling.

Bake at 350(F) for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.

For the glaze, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over each warm danish.
Cook's Note: If you don't need so many danishes, just use one tube of crescent rolls and save the leftover cream cheese filling for another time. Just put it in a container with an airtight lid and store in the fridge for up to a week.

Makes 8 danishes

*When I made my danishes,
I only made 4 danishes but I used the whole recipe
of the cheese filling.
I also did not put the glaze on mine.
Here are some pics I took of the process.
Brandie also has pictures on her blog.

My New Goats!

Our new milking goats for my 
homegrown, hand crafted soaps!
