Easy Cheese Danish Recipe

These cream cheese Danish pastries are SO quick and easy to make, yet taste like they came from a fancy bakery! The filling options are limitless: try apple jam, raspberry preserves, chocolate, nutella, fresh fruit or lemon curd to name a few! But, fair warning – between the layers of flaky, buttery puff pastry, rich cream cheese filling, glossy jam, crumbly streusel and sweet vanilla glaze – this danish braid is dangerously addictive and absolutely impossible to resist!

These jam-filled pastries are perfect for easy weekend baking, yet beautiful enough for a special holiday breakfast spread! Enjoy this bakery-style danish for breakfast, brunch, at snack time or even as a dessert! Homemade Danishes may seem intimidating at first glance, but trust me, this recipe is so simple even a beginner baker can master it in a flash!

Decadent, rich cream cheese and silky, fruity jam encased in buttery, flaky, pillowy-soft puff pastry. Braided and generously topped with soft crumbles of sweet pecan streusel and lovingly drizzled with a vanilla-kissed glaze. Honestly, this danish is so addictive!
