A Cherry Cheese Danish Recipe That’s Easy and Delicious

I love to bake but finding the time and energy to do so can be a challenge these days. While I would love to bake from scratch it is not usually realistic for me. When I do find a few moments to whip something up I look for an easy alternative to scratch made goodness. I love a good danish for breakfast or for an afternoon treat with a cup of coffee. This easy cherry cheese danish recipe is simple to make and absolutely delicious!

Easy Cherry Cheese Danish Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • ounces  cream cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • large egg yolk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • tube Grands flaky biscuits
  • tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 Can Cherry Pie Filling

PREPARATION

      • In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, the egg yolk, the salt and the vanilla until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a resealable plastic bag; set aside.
      • Open can of biscuits, and stretch each one out and flatten slightly on an ungreased cookie sheet.
      • Cut the tip off one corner of the filled plastic bag so you have a 1/2-inch hole. Use the bag to pipe the cheese filling onto the center of biscuit. Add a dollop of cherry pie filling on top of the cheese mixture.
