Cheese Danish

Here’s a recipe for cheese danish that you simply must try. I promise you won’t be disappointed and may probably never purchase one from the store again. Trust me, they are far superior in taste!!!

  • 8 oz room temp cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp  vanilla yogurt
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 sheets thawed puff pastry
  • 1 beaten egg for egg wash

  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl and mix until creamy.
  3. Unfold puff pastry and roll on a lightly floured counter (be sure to put a bit of flour on the rolling pin and the pastry). Roll pastry to desired size and cut each one into four squares.
  4. Place a tablespoon of cream cheese filling in the center of each square.
  5. Brush the edges of the squares with the egg wash and fold two corners diagonally. Place danish on baking sheet and refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
  6. Before baking, brush the top of each danish with eggwash. Bake in a 350 degrees preheated oven for about half an hour or until puffed and golden brown.
  7. Allow filling to cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy.
