While this recipe may not be on the diet list, it is a favorite among our guests. It’s a sin to share, as the danish are so quick and easy to make. (You’ll know I’m not slaving all day in the kitchen!) It is also great to take along to a brunch party for a special treat as it makes a big pan.
2 – Pkg. Crescent Rolls 1/8 c. egg beaters (or 1 egg yolk)
2 – 8 oz. 1/3 fat cream cheese 1tsp. vanilla
1 C. granulated sugar 1tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. Almond extract
Spread one pkg. of rolls on the bottom of a 9” x 13” greased pan. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, egg, and extracts until smooth. Spread batter on top of rolls. Spread the second package of rolls on top, sealing to the sides of the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden in color.
Mix 2 T. milk and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Spread over hot, baked Danish as a glaze. Cool. Cut into desired shapes, (we like triangles). Makes about 24.
