Strawberry Cheese Danish is filled with sweet strawberries and lemon cream cheese. Made with crescent dough, this treat couldn't be tastier.
This time last year I was letting perfectly yeasted dough with just a hint of orange rise, spreading it with a cooked strawberry sauce, and some sweetened cream cheese, and rolling each piece into a fluffy dough heart. My recipe for sweetheart rolls is a labor of love, and if you have time for yeasted dough they make lovely Valentine breakfast treats.
I don’t always have time for kneading and rising, rolling, filling, shaping and baking. I wish I could always work everything out from scratch, but really sometimes I just can’t.
So this year I decided to run with the same citrus + strawberry + cream cheesy breakfast pastry theme, while knocking off nearly all the labor. My secret?
I know. They are kind of like the magical answer to all the bread things be it breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert. And did you know that you can get sheets of the crescent dough minus the perforations? I love them.
They make great shortcuts for so many things! And they are key to making this easy strawberry cheese Danish.
If you can’t find the seamless sheets, you can just grab a regular tube of crescent rolls and gently pinch together the seams. It’ll only take you an extra minute or two.
Then you quickly chop up some strawberries and sprinkle them with a little sugar, mix softened cream cheese with sugar and some lemon zest, spread it across the crescent sheet, top with the strawberries, roll it up, slice it, bake it, and BAM! Beautiful breakfast.
There are lots of great things about this strawberry cheese Danish recipe, but one of my favorite things is that it’s not sooooo Valentine-ey that you couldn’t say… make them in June when the strawberries are extra super perfectly sweet.
