Super Easy Breakfast Danish

You’ve probably seen this recipe before. I got it from a teacher friend a few years ago. It’s great to serve at breakfast when you’re feeding a large group.


2 cans of crescent rolls

1 large block of cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup powered sugar

1-2 tablespoons  milk

1 teaspoon vanilla (halved)

1 egg, separated

Roll out one can of crescent rolls (pinching the pieces to form one large area) on a greased cookie sheet. Mix together granulated sugar, one egg yoke, cream cheese, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Spread the mixture on top of the crescent roll. Place the other crescent roll on top.  Use a fork to stir the egg white and brush the top of the danish with the egg white. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.  Glaze – mix together powdered sugar, milk, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Drizzle on top of the warm danish. (Yes, you can forgo the galze, but why?)
