1) Use reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat crescent rolls. You won't notice the difference and your thighs will thank you.
2) Change up the flavoring or extracts or add a layer of fruit/fruit spread. Get creative!
Linda's Cream Cheese Danish
2 8 ct cans of crescent rolls
2 8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
cinnamon sugar blend
1 egg white, beaten
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon milk
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, cream cheese and 1/8 teaspoon or about 10 turns of a cinnamon sugar grinder.
I used this:
Set aside. Roll out one can of crescent rolls into a sprayed 9x13 pan.Top with cream cheese mixture. Once mixture is spread out, sprinkle lightly with more cinnamon sugar. Top with remaining can of rolled out crescent rolls. Brush top with whipped egg white and bake for 30 min.
Mix glaze with remaining ingredients and top danish while still hot from the oven. Let set for 10-15 minutes and enjoy.
