Easy Breakfast Cheese Danish

This Cheese Danish recipe is so easy to make, that yes, even my husband has made this one before!

This is a quick and easy recipe for cheese danish that my family simply adores. We love it best still warm from the oven, but it will keep well for a couple of days if it’s well covered and placed in the refrigerator.

It also reheats well in the microwave for a few seconds. Try this simple recipe for your own family and see if they don’t rave about it too!


  • 2 cans ready to use refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • instructions next page


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350* degrees and grease a 13X9-inch baking pan. Lay a pack of crescent rolls in the pan and pinch the openings together. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg together until smooth. Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls evenly and then lay the second pack of crescent rolls on top of the cheese mixture and brush with egg white. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the top is golden brown. Top with glaze after cooling for 20 minutes.

Kitchen Notes:

I have made this danish using low fat cream cheese and splenda (sugar substitute) and it was delicious! Also, the amount of filling the original recipe calls for makes a VERY heavily filled danish. I have halved the filling using 1 package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 whole egg, and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and it was still very good. If you use the half filling method, bake for closer to 30-35 minutes.

    My husband is not a cream cheese lover. Could I add blueberries to the cream cheese? Then I would you use the smaller amount of Crm chse.

    • Dennis

      Try adding a good scoop of blueberry or other pie filling on top before serving.

      • April

        I’d thought about adding the canned cherry pie filling before baking. Thanks for reinforcing my afterthought.

      • Donna

        Dennis that was so rude!! She was nice enough to give us the recipe. If your unfamiliar with baking my I suggest you refer to you tube they can give you step by step. I think she needs an apology.

    Directions on how to make the glaze would have been helpful.

    • Connie

      Love these recipes

    • Dennis

      Tamara, It gives you the 3 ingredients for the glaze. Really, what do you think you would do with these 3 items? Would you just put the three ingredients on top of the Danish or would you mix them together first to make a glaze first !

    • Chris

      Easy Peasy …..
      Measure any amount of powdered sugar, add any flavor of extract (depending on what’s on the dough) . Mix p.s., ex x milk to what consistency you want, thick or thin icing. Play with it till you get what you want. When I use cherries it’s almond extract. Blueberries x lemon extract. Apple filling use cinnamon powder for flavor.
      Hope this helps.

  10. Jane Pardue

    Sounds really good! The problem is that I found the ingredients but not the instructions!

  11. Talley

    Whenever I need a glaze, I use white powdered sugar and a bit of milk just enough to make a smooth mixture. I also add, from time to time, a drop or three of lemon juice. It’s lovely and easy.

  21. O

    Are these 6 ingredients all of it besides the glaze which I know consists of 3 more ingredients? Also, besides the Crescent dough, I assume I just mix all the other ingredients together, correct? And then what temperature do I cook it at? The instructions portion of this recipe cannot be found or if there are more ingredients listed after the egg white. It makes it real hard to give you a thumbs up when you don’t give the entire recipe

  22. Mary J Peck

    I want to print the whole recipe with instructions without having to add the extension.

  23. Marie

    If they would have listed those three ingredients she probably would have known what to do with them.

  32. Candy

    As a cook – I made this by combining the cream cheese, sugar vanilla and 1 egg together until smooth. Spread it out on one crescent roll and top and seal edges with the second crescent roll. Whip up the egg white and brush on top and bake per instructions on the crescent roll can. – Top with a mixture of powdered sugar and milk (as thick or thin as you want it ). It really isn’t rocket science – But, it is tasty. You can also put canned pie filling in the middle (your choice of flavors) with the cream cheese and bake too.
