One of my favorite things about going on vacation when we were young were the danishes some hotels have out for breakfast. I am sure they just dreaded seeing our family of 8 heading toward the pastry table because we would clear them out! What can I say? We love our pastries! These danishes are so tasty and have only 3 ingredients!
1 8-count tube refrigerated crescent rolls
Flour for the work surface
4 tablespoons cream cheese
4 tablespoons fruit jam
Heat oven to 400° F. Carefully unroll the dough on a lightly floured surface. Divide along the dotted lines into 4 equal rectangles.
Working with 1 rectangle at a time, gently pinch and smooth the dough to eliminate the diagonal dotted lines. Trim the dough along one side to approximate a square.
Place 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and 1 tablespoon of jam in the center of each square. Fold each corner to the center of the square, pinching them together. Transfer to a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and milk to create icing. You may need to add more milk to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danishes.
