Mini Cherry Cream Cheese Danish

First let me say, this recipe is the most requested recipe in our house currently. My kids and husband can’t get enough! My husband also likes this with apple pie filing. But myself and my kids think it’s perfect the way it is!! 


2 roll Pillsbury Crescent Rolls


8 ounces soft cream cheese

2/3 cup sugar

splash vanilla

Cherry pie filling or any pie filling, even the caramel apple is amazing!

2/3 cup powdered sugar

4 tsp. milk

Open container of rolls and do no unroll them. Use a sharp, serrated knife to cut through them like slice & bake cookies. Make 9 or 10 slices. Do this for each roll you use. 
Lay each slice on a non stick cookie sheet.

Use a measuring cup (I use a shot glass bottom, or my fingers) to flatten each roll out in the middle and build a small wall around the edge.

Use a drop of flour to prevent sticking and press with your fingertips if needed


Electric mixer, cream the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.

Dollop a small amount into each crescent roll

Add a teaspoonful of cherries or any pie filling

Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.

Let cool and add a drizzle of glaze.


Combine milk and powdered sugar and drizzle over slightly warm but cooled Danish.
