Christmas Tree Danish Recipe

Easy Last Minute Breakfast Recipe

 for Christmas Morning!

Open the cans of crescent rolls but do NOT separate them.  Slice them into circles and then arrange the crescent circles into the shape of a Christmas tree. 

Using your thumb or the back of a spoon, gently indent the middle of each circle.

Place a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture into each crescent circle followed by a spoonful of cherry pie filling. Bake at 350 for 18 - 20 minutes.

Once the danish has cooled, drizzle the glaze over the entire danish.  You don't need to cut the danish, just start pulling the crescent circles apart and ENJOY.  

And if you're really crazy for time...try this EASY recipe idea!

Now, if you're really stressed for time, you can use a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and eliminate the cream cheese cherry pie filling.  Use two cans and place the rolls in the shape of a Christmas tree on the baking tray and bake according to the package directions, followed by the glaze that comes with the cinnamon rolls.

Your family will love this cute idea of a Christmas tree breakfast!

Christmas Tree Cream Cheese Danish

An easy last-minute recipe to serve for breakfast on Christmas morning is this delicious Christmas tree cream cheese danish. Your family is going to love this!

INGREDIENTS:


  • 2 cans of refrigerated crescent rolls.
  • 8 ounces cream cheese; softened
  • 1 can of cherry pie filling
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
For the Glaze:
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine the glaze ingredients together until smooth and set aside until the danish is baked and cooled.
  2. Open the packages of crescent rolls, but do not separate them. Using a serrated knife, slice each "roll" into 12 equal pieces. Using your thumb or the back of a spoon, gently indent the middle of each circle so there is a space for the cream cheese to be placed inside. Arrange the crescent circles into the shape of a Christmas tree.
  3. Place a small spoonful of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each crescent circle. Then place a small spoonful of the cherry pie filling on top.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes.
