  • 1 tube crescent roll dough
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Blackberry Filling


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • On a cutting board, unwrap your crescent dough tube and slice the dough into 8 equal discs.
  • Place discs on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and gently press them down to spread them into large discs. You will want a slight depression in each for the filling.
  • Add one heaping teaspoon of sweet cream cheese filling to each.
  • For the blackberry filling, gentle smash the berries using the back of a fork until smushed. Add sugar, and combine.
  • Add one teaspoon of blackberry filling on top of the cream cheese.
  • Bake for 15 minutes on the center rack.
  • While they are baking, mix the powdered sugar and milk until thick and creamy.
  • Once danish are done, cool for 5 minutes and then ice them.
  • To ice, dip a fork into the sugar icing and swizzle on top of each danish.
  • Enjoy the same day for best taste!
