Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese with white sugar and vanilla extract. Mixture should be creamy and smooth when finished (like cheesecake batter).
  3. Separate dough into eight rectangles. Seal perforations.
  4. Using a brush or spoon, spread melted butter all over crescent rolls. Sprinkle each rectangle with about 1 tablespoons of brown sugar.
  5. Roll up from long side; pinch edges to seal. Holding one end, loosely coil each.
  6. Now you want to get in there with your fingers and spread out the dough some to make room for the filling. Just pull and stretch and make a nice dent in the middle.
  7. Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Top each coil with about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese filling.
  8. Bake at 350(F) for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. For the glaze, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over each warm danish.
