Extremely easy for a beginner and amazingly GOOD! I used the same triangles that come in the cans (16 total/ 8 per can), filled them with the cream cheese and rolled them like crescent rolls and they baked fantastic!! Soft and buttery and...oh! so good! My husband would have preferred a sweeter glaze (more powdered sugar). I think next time I would prefer almond extract in the glaze instead of vanilla. I felt like a pastry chef!
I used lemon curd instead of fruit preserves. We didn't care for them. I don't feel like the crescent dough is transformed enough in this recipe
Instead of preserves, I used some lemon curd that I made earlier in the week and used lemon extract instead of vanilla for the glaze. My lemon curd spread out over the roll, so be sure to make your indentation deep enough to avoid that. The cream cheese filling is really yummy. The roll's texture is heavier than a flaky bakery danish, but the flavor is as good.
I have made these twice now. I would suggest reducing the cream cheese mixture by about 25% (so 6 oz (3/4 brick) cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tsp lemon juice) and adding about 2 T jam to the mix (still put some on top). I made it as instructed the first time and thought that it was way too cream cheesy, and the filling exploded. With less cream cheese filling and some of the fruit flavor mixed in, they came out much better.
Excellent. Excellent. I made according to recipe and the cheese filling was so good. Very easy to make. I used some raspberry and strawberry jam. I added more after they were done baking as the jam had reduced quiet a bit. I left two as is but i think they look better when you make the wells even if you just add some of the cheese filling to the middle. Do not eat fresh out of the oven. But make sure to drizzle with glaze while still hot. I made them the night before and had them for breakfast, they were perfect then. These tasted like professional bakery bought Danishes.
I did the same thing the other reviewer did, I just filled them and then rolled them like a normal crescent roll, but I tucked the sides together more tightly. One thing, I thought there was way too much cream cheese mixture. I had SO much extra that I used it as frosting on a cake I had made earlier. I also used some apple filling in some of them, and semi-sweet chocolate chips in some, too. They were pretty good, and very easy.
YUM, these were delicious! I filled some w/ strawberry preserves and some w/ orange marmalade...both were excellent! I will def be making these again and again...couldn't be simplier! Thanks for sharing. :)
These were good, but I need to bake them longer because the insides were not quite done.
