Easy Cherry Danish Recipe

Adapted from


1 package flaky biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands)
1/4 cup sugar
8 oz bar of cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon almond extract (can also substitute Vanilla)
21 oz. can of cherry pie filling
small amount of milk & powdered sugar for drizzle
Quick Cherry Pie Danish Hip2Save

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together cream cheese, almond extract and sugar and set aside. Using a serrated edge knife, carefully slice each biscuit in half so there will be 16 total slices. Place biscuits on a large baking sheet lined with a non stick baking mat or parchment paper. Use a small glass or spice container dipped in flour to indent the middle of each biscuit. Spread cream cheese on each biscuit and then add pie filling making sure to include a few cherries on top. Bake for about 12-15 minutes.

While the biscuits are baking, mix 3 tablespoons or so of powdered sugar and a tiny bit of milk in a small dish. If the mixture is too thin, add more powdered sugar until you get a smooth icing to drizzle. Take Danish out of oven, let cool, and drizzle your icing over each roll. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.

NOTE: You will likely have extra pie filling so consider buying another package of rolls and doubling the cream cheese mixture to make a double batch!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two?

No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.
