These easy to make Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish only have 8 ingredients, and you can have them on the table in 20 minutes start to finish. This recipe is very kid friendly and uses easy pantry and refrigerator ingredients.
In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Use a rubber spatula to clean the sides of the bowl as you are mixing. Set cream cheese mixture aside.
Open only one package of crescent rolls and remove them from the tube. Do not unroll them, instead keep them in a long cylinder shape and place on a cutting board. (The crescent rolls will dry out and not shape easily if left on the counter. This is why we recommend cooking in batches).
Using a sharp knife, cut the long cylinder into 12 equal pieces.
Using your fingers and thumbs, flatten each round circle in the middle. Place each circle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
Using a small spoon, place a small amount of cream cheese in the center of each crescent roll.
Using a small spoon, place a small amount of blueberry pie filling on top of the cream cheese filling. Make sure to have at least 3 blueberries on each danish or they will look flat and not full of fruit.
Bake in the oven for 10-11 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
Drizzle each danish with the lemon glaze and serve warm.
Open your second tube of crescent rolls and repeat steps.
