This super simple and easy breakfast cheese Danish recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth craving without keeping you in the kitchen for too long.


  • 2 cans ready to use refrigerated crescent rolls 
  • 2 packages 8-ounce packages cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white + 1 Tbsp milk or water
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (for glaze)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (for glaze)
  • 2 tbsp milk (for glaze)


  1. Sit cream cheese out to begin softening.
  2. Preheat oven to 350* degrees
  3. Grease a 13X9-inch baking pan. We like to use coconut oil.
  4. Lay crescent roll sheet in the pan, pushing the dough gently out to the edges.
  5. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg until smooth.
  6. Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls evenly.
  7. Top cheese mixture with second pack of crescent rolls dough.
  8. Brush with egg wash (egg white + 1 Tbsp milk or water)
  9. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the top is golden brown
  10. Cool for ~20 minutes, while you make the glaze. Drizzle and brush on cooled danish.


For a shortcut to making sauce toppings, you can use ready made preserves, jams, syrups, custard, and pie fillings to add more flavors and delight. Even better, add a few sprinkles of the actual fruit. E.g., if you use raspberry jam, add a few fresh raspberries, and even a drizzle of raspberry syrup! YUMMY and looks like gourmet fair.
