This recipe took just a couple of minutes to throw together, but tastes like it came straight from a pastry shop. To say we loved it would be an understatement!! It was so yummy. It would also make a great dessert!
(If you don't like blackberries, you could actually substitute any kind of fruit in there! Or, just use the cream cheese filling without fruit- that would be yummy too!).

Easy Blackberry and Cream Cheese Danish:
(Makes 4-6 )
1 tube Pillsbury crescent rolls
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup fresh blackberries or 1 cup blackberry pie filling (or any flavor you like!)

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla.  Set aside.  Open crescent roll dough and unroll, leaving crescents in rectangles.  On an ungreased baking sheet, lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise.  Dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan.  Press edges together to even out edges and seal any holes.  Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough.  Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide.  Top with fresh blackberries or blackberry pie filling. Fold 1/2 inch dough pieces up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern.  You may have excess dough once you reach the end of the danish, so fold them in as best as you can.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until filling is set and crescent dough is golden in color.  Cool before removing from baking sheet.

Once danish has cooled, remove to serving platter. In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and cream to create icing. You may need to add more cream to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danish. Cut into pieces and serve.

    I love this recipe, but had a really hard time with the dough cooking all the way through. Did anyone else have this problem? If so how did you fix it??

    Made this morning and it was super easy and delish! Im going to try to freeze a few pieces and see how it goes. I had the same problem with cooking all the way through, it really needs the 15-20 minutes even thiugh it gets golden brown first. My oven is hot so I turned it down a bit for the last 5 minutes so they didn’t burn.
