If you’ve read this blog long enough, then you already know that crescent rolls and I are friends. Good friends.
The best friendships are easy and balanced. They require a certain amount of smoothness and roughness, of lightness and darkness, and even sweetness and saltiness. Like an good-old friend, this Strawberry Cream Cheese Danish recipe is a balanced blend of all the right things. The smooth and creamy cream cheese texture is broken up by the crispy crust ,lightened up with delicious strawberry filling and spiced up with a simple sugar glaze.
There are so many family friendly recipes you can make with store bought crescent rolls here on SA such as Crescent Roll Apple Dumplings or Easy Pecan Pie Bars and I could barely wait to get into the kitchen to make this easy dessert (or they would go on a brunch table very well!). Just imagine buttery crescent rolls, filled with a sweetened cream cheese mixture and delicious strawberry filling. Top them off with a simple glaze to make them beautiful and delicious.
