Strawberry Cheese Danishes are crescent rolls with a cream cheese filling and strawberry jam.

My hubby is a HUGE fan of cheese danishes. Me, not so much, until I made these delicious Strawberry Cheese Danishes! πŸ™‚

I remember when Kale and I were dating he told me about a place that sold his favorite cheese danishes. It was up in Veyo, Ut. A tiny little town about 20 minutes north of St. George.

Strawberry Cheese Danishes are crescent rolls with a cream cheese filling and strawberry jam.

One day my sister had to go there, so I decided to tag along with her and grab one of those ‘amazing’ danishes to surprise Kale with. I was so excited! I returned back to his house and handed it to him. He looked at me like I was crazy.

“What’s wrong?” I asked.

“This isn’t the right one.” he said.

“What? I got it at that market in Veyo.”

He replied, “This is a packaged Danish I can get anywhere!”

“Oh.” Silence…

So low and behold, I accidentally bought him the wrong one. In that market there are fresh homemade danishes they sell there, but me being Miss. Dumb Blonde, bought him a packaged one that was next to all the Hostess stuff! lol  Ooopsie.

Hey, It’s the thought that counts! Right? haha.

These Strawberry Cheese Danishes are buttery, flaky crescent rolls with a delicious strawberry center and a vanilla glaze drizzle. They’re the perfect treat to have on a hot summer day or to start out your morning with.

Not only are these a cinch to make, but they taste a million times better than the store bought versions. And with only a 30 minute prep time, you can have these delicious baby’s in your belly in no time!

  1. It is definitely the thought that counts! I am going to have to save this recipe so I can pick up some crescents and make these for family breakfast soon. It seems like every time I visit you I get another dish to add to my “to make” list! You’re awesome πŸ™‚

  2. Ok I had to laugh when I read this…Because I know the danishes he is talking about. I have visited this little “pie Shop” in Veyo before myself. πŸ™‚

    However these do look great. πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks Holly for the input! I’m making plans to start pretty soon doing the cookbook thing! I told Gordon he will get these rolls this weekend and he’s thrilled, loves the cream cheese!

  4. Oh these look yum!

    I don’t think we have this refrigerated dough in Australia however? May have to look online for a substitute to try these babies


    1. There are recipes online to make your own crescent roll dough. I’d do that before using Pillsbury, I haven’t looked at their ingredients, but I’d bet there are more than they need as well as a fairly high sodium content. Don’t know about transfats either.

  5. Looks so good right now, breakfast time. But they’d be good anytime. There’s never a wrong time to eat yummy sweet stuff!

  6. It is the thought, darn it! πŸ˜‰ I have a very similar recipe and I love it. What’s nice is that you can fill them with anything your heart desires.

  7. Haha that’s funny! These look like a little piece of heaven! I’ve never dared try the ones in the packages but these I would for sure!!!

  8. holly!! these look awesome… i’m a huge fan of cream cheese danishes, too.
    i bet these taste great with the crescent roll!

    p.s. what was the joke you played on your sister for april fools?!

  9. These look wonderful and they have the added benefit of not being hard to do. That makes them a winner in my book. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  10. Oh, if only I’d seen this post earlier I could have made these this morning! Ugh! We have company and these little danishes would have been the perfect breakfast. I have to bookmark this. THey look delicious!

  11. Man, these just reminded me how long it’s been since I’ve had a cheese danish, and they are so yummy too! I must remedy this asap. Yours look delicious!

  12. Thank you so much Holly for stopping by my blog and introducing yourself! I love meeting new followers of my blog….and I LOVE discovering new blogs like yours that makes my mouth water. These danish look out of this world d’lish! – I can’t wait to make them myself…thank you for sharing! πŸ™‚

  13. I just got these out of the oven and mine do not look like yours! Did you spread the rectangles out a bit so they were a little stretched out? I did not do that and I think I should have! I think they will still taste good, though. πŸ™‚ I have filled crescents before and I should have known to do it. Thanks for all the awesome recipes. I am a HUGE fan of cheese danishes!

  14. My husband is also a huge danish fan. I am going to have to surprise him and make these this weekend. Thanks for sharing. So happy to be your newest follower. check out my blog when you have a chance.

  15. I just made these quick this morning for my husband, it’s our 9th anniversary today, he absolutely loved them! The only thing I changed, is I used strawberry pie filling instead of jam!

  16. Hi, the recipie seems simple enough, but I just have one question. When you say “uncoil each,” do you mean each triangle after you have already rolled up the entire sheet? Or am I missing something? Please help…..

    Hi Holly, i made these for My husband this morning and they turned out great. He loves danishes, and when I saw THem on your site, I thought I would give them a try.
    The only exception I had to make was to put them in the fridge before rolling because the filling was running out. Thanks for another great recipe!
