Easy Cherry Danish Recipe

Easy Cherry Danish Recipe

yield: 6 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 15 MINUTES

total time: 25 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2

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.

3

Place biscuits on a large baking sheet lined with a non stick baking mat or parchment paper.

4

Use a small glass or spice container dipped in flour to indent the middle of each biscuit.

5

Spread cream cheese on each biscuit and then add pie filling making sure to include a few cherries on top.

6

Bake for about 12-15 minutes.

7

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.

8

Take Danish out of oven, let cool, and drizzle your icing over each roll.

9

Enjoy warm or at room temperature.

Additional Notes

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!

  7. j

    Anyone have an easy but really yummy cream cheese croissants recipe??? I really miss them 🙁

  8. Jennifer

    Maybe you could use the exact same recipe, just roll it in a croissant or put a crossing on bottom and top. Technically should work.

  9. amanda

    I make these all the time and use the same idea for banana creme pies

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh yum!

  10. Lauren

  12. Vanessa

    Anyone know if these will still be delicious with marmalade?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I think so! I’ve made similar using blackberry jam. Yum

  13. Terri Miller

    This would also be great to do with apple pie filling minus the cream cheese or for the matter any pie filling great idea thanks. I have a school potluck I’m going to try this out on.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Awesome! You’ll love it. 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great Susan –thanks for sharing!

  15. Sherry

    Has anyone tried this recipe with Pillsbury Grands Biscuits?

  16. Yvonne

    Pretty disappointed in these. No cream cheese taste at all. Just tasted like a biscuit with some cherries on it. Don’t know what I expected since I was using a biscuit but even the glaze didn’t taste like anything. They looked great but no flavor! Will try with crescent rolls next time.

  17. Mark H

    Made these today while my 89 year old mother slept . She was surprised when she woke and enjoyed two with a coffee.
    Thank you for the idea , there great !
    Had nothing sweet in house .
