Cream Cheese Danish Squares Recipe

Hello everyone! I have a really good recipe to share with you today.
It is one of those pretty easy to put together treats that most everyone will like to eat.

 Cream Cheese Danish Squares

2 cans refrigerated butter crescent rolls
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350* F

  • Open one can of crescent rolls and spread out evenly into a rectangle pinching seams together with fingers on the bottom of an un-greased baking sheet. 
  • Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat until creamy with a hand mixer. (Or you can use a spoon)
  • Spread mixture over crescent rolls with a spatula. 
  • Unroll and place remaining crescent rolls over mixture. (They don't have to be pinched together)
  • Brush melted butter over the top of pastry.
  • Mix cinnamon and brown sugar and sprinkle over top.
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until done.
  • Let cool in pan, then cut into squares.
Yield: 24 squares 

These are a great snack with coffee or tea.

I know I should only eat these on occasions, and then follow my next meal up with a salad only!!
LOL! I wish baking wasn't so much fun to make and to eat!
But this is a good one, so I hope you try it out!
I have been pretty happy about our almost daily rain showers, but have also been a little displeased with the lack of outdoor time I can spend with my kids before school starts. My Son will be starting classes next week.
Seems too early to me, but that is how they do it here. At least we still have weekends to try and have a little fun, in between home work. I always wish summer break lasted longer with my children.

Hoping you are doing very good!

  1. Susie,

    The cheese Danish recipe sounds amazing, I must try in soon.

    I'm sorry to hear your area starts school so much earlier than the other schools across this country. On a good note though, they will get out earlier next year :-)
    Doing things with our kinds on the weekends will makeup time while in school.
    Hurry up and get a little cooler here and we can go camping!!!

    Enjoy your rain, we had some too. The yard still has 1 inch sitting waiting to dry up.

  2. This recipe is right down my alley -- I'll give it a try! The rain keeps missing us - send it about 40 miles southwest: we can use it. Sally

  3. Oh that looks so good, and easy is my style! Thanks for sharing, can't wait to try it.

    S hool coming up so soon? Wow, whatever happened to going back after labor day?

    :) Pam

  4. This looks like a recipe even I can't mess up! Will have to try. Thanks for sharing.

  5. So yummy and wish we could have some tea and these sweet treats together!! Wishing you a lovely week!! xo Heather

  6. Mmm...looks and sounds delicious! I have a weakness for anything with cinnamon :) It's hard to believe your son will be starting school next week. Although it's hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of August. The summer has flown by!

    Thanks for sharing the tasty recipe.

    Hugs to you!

  7. sounds delish! I would want to eat too many of them though, which would get me in trouble. lol... Ive been naughty the last couple weeks on my weight watchers.. Im back on track now though.
    and now.. I should go get some fruit for breakfast!
    happy day!

  8. This sounds delicious, thanks for sharing!! I am sorry to hear that the last week of school hols hasn't been that great on the weather front. I know what you mean. Our first week has been pretty wet down in Cheshire and I think they are giving out a great deal more rain to come. Enjoy the last few days. xoxo

  9. Susie that recipe sounds great. I happen to have all the ingredients in the frig. That is something my hubby will like. So glad to hear you are getting a little rain. It is hot here yesterday it was 104 in my husband's truck coming home and there is no rain in site for us. Hope you get to enjoy lots of time with your children before they go back to school.

  10. You're gonna ruin my special diet, Susie! lol

  11. Wow, I never would have thought a cheese danish could be so easy to make! I love that I usually have all these ingredients in the house except for the crescent rolls. Such a quickie recipe favorite kind! Thanks for sharing your recipe at the linky party Susie!

  13. Hi Susie,

    These cream cheese danishes look and sound scrumptious! We make something similar to these here on the island with a farmer's cheese, similar to ricotta, in addition to all the other ingredients. Thanks for sharing!
