Do you need an EASY last minute breakfast recipe for Christmas morning?
This recipe for Christmas Tree Cream Cheese Danish is easy and perfect for Christmas morning.
This is the same recipe I made last year making a Candy Cane Cream Cheese Danish using refrigerated crescent rolls. I've seen a lot of different variations of this Christmas tree danish idea on
Pinterest and Facebook, so I thought I would make it for our annual Cookie Exchange Party last week.  


Arrange the crescent circles into the shape of a Christmas tree.  I used two cans of crescent rolls since I was bringing this danish to our annual cookie exchange party. I also doubled the recipe.
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.  Now, if you're really stressed for time, you can use a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls.  I would 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.  Your family will love this cute idea of a Christmas tree breakfast!

INGREDIENTS:


  • 1 can of refrigerated crescent rolls.
  • 4 ounces cream cheese; softened

  • 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 package of crescent rolls, but do not separate them. Using a serrated knife, slice them 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. lace 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.
