Strawberry Cheese Danish Recipe

    14 Servings


  • 1 8 ounce can Seamless Crescent Dough
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar, Plus 1 teaspoon, divided
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest, Or orange


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.
  2. Toss the strawberries with the 1 teaspoon of sugar and set aside.
  3. Beat together the cream cheese, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, and lemon zest.
  4. Unroll the crescent dough sheet onto a lightly floured surface (this prevents sticking). Gently spread the cream cheese all the way to the edges of the dough. Spoon the sweetened strawberries over the cream cheese.
  5. With a long side of the dough rectangle closest to you, roll the dough away into a neatly filled log.
  6. Using a sharp knife, and with the roll seam-side down, cut the log into 12-14 slices, each about ¾” wide. Place them on the prepared baking sheet about 2” apart.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Let the Danish cool before removing from the baking sheet to serve.
