crescent cheese danishes


Do you remember a short while back I posted a recipe for Shortcut Apple Danishes? Well, I got such great feedback from that recipe that I had to try my hand at some cream cheese ones. I just love all the things you can do with crescent rolls
So I tried my hand at a yummy cream cheese fillings and butter my butt and call me a biscuit – I was surprised at how good these turned out. I mean, I shouldn’t have been surprised. But I was surprised I didn’t start with the cream cheese ones to begin with. So this one is for all you cheese danish lovers!
