Cheese croissant


A light, flaky Danish pastry stuffed with soft cheese and topped with frosting. This easy Danish cream cheese recipe is made right at home with croissant dough.

Cheese is one of those foods that I probably can never give up. It is versatile and delicious in meals and desserts. In fact, I often fail in my diet because I can't give up cheese.

This cream cheese is super easy to make and pairs with my favorite baking ingredient...croissant dough!

Why haven't I tried this awesome little tube of goodness in years? Crescent bread dough is perfect for people who, like me, are 

uncomplicated and love comfort.

I've made so many delicious croissant recipes since discovering their endless versatility!

°8 oz cream cheese, room temperature

°2 tsp unsalted butter, melted

°1 tsp lemon juice

°4 teaspoons of milk

°1 teaspoon vanilla


The first step:

The second step:

Open the croissant dough tubes and do not flatten them

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, lemon juice, vanilla, and granulated sugar until well combined.

Third step:

Using a pastry brush, brush each slice with butter.

Put equal amounts of filling on each slice

Sixth step:

The dane can then be topped with your choice of fruit or eaten plain.
