  • Electric Mixer
  • OVEN


  • 1 Tube Crescent Rolls
  • 1 8 oz Block Cream Cheese Softened
  • ¾ Cup Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat Oven to 375°
  • In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla and set aside. (I used an electric mixer)
  • Open crescent roll dough and unroll, On an ungreased baking sheet, place parchment paper to line the pan. Lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise. Dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan.
  • Next, press edges together and seal any holes. Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide. Cut ½ inch diagonal strips on each side of the dough. Fold ½ inch strips over the filling -alternating sides to give braided effect.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown and filling is set-cool completely before removing from baking pan
  • Move danish to serving tray - mix together powdered sugar, cream, and vanilla to make icing
  • Drizzle or pipe icing on to danish
  • Cut and serve
