The other day I attended a Cookie Exchange Party.
We all were asked to bring a breakfast/brunch dish to share and I brought this delicious Candy Cane Cream Cheese Danish. It was so easy and delicious.
I love using crescent rolls to make delicious treats! This Candy Cane Danish looked great on the buffet with all the other yummy food. My only problem was I was afraid to remove it from the baking tray to put on a pretty Christmas platter, but I managed.
Candy Cane Cream Cheese Danish
Follow these EASY step-by-step instructions!
You can use the crescent roll sheet pastry or you can use one tube of crescent rolls. Either way is fine! It really helps to draw the candy cane on parchment paper to create a template.
Then cut out the candy cane.
Using a pizza cutter, cut out the shape of the candy cane. EASY!
Cut stripes with the extra dough.
Spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the candy cane dough.
Add the cherry pie filling.
Now add the strips of dough to form the stripes of the candy cane Tuck the ends under to make everything neat. Transfer the parchment paper with the candy cane onto a 9X14 baking tray.
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the danish is golden brown. Then add the glaze right before serving. Pretty, right?
Note: If you are not using the crescent dough sheet, you can use a can of crescent rolls. Only do not separate the crescent rolls when you open the can. Roll them out and press the seams together to form one large rectangle of crescent dough. Then place the candy cane parchment paper template on top and continue with the recipe.
