Raspberry Danish

My family has always made a Danish fruit braid at the holidays. Typically, they are ones my sister has purchased from a student’s fundraiser. Since I was hosting Christmas (for the first time and in my brand-new home), I saw this recipe on Facebook and decided to make it for the day after Christmas. It’s a pretty easy braid. I tried to replicate the candy cane design online. Mine wasn’t as pretty as the pros at Pillsbury made but I’m sure it tasted just as good.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish by Pillsbury
img_0535.jpg1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
4 oz. cream cheese
2 T. sugar
2 T. raspberry preserves
¾ c. fresh raspberries
1 T. butter, melted
sprinkle with sugar
¼ c. powder sugar
½ T. milk

Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper. Open crescent rolls and separate into eight triangles. Cut each triangle in half. Lay on cookie sheet in a line, slightly overlapping. Press together. Mix softened cream cheese with sugar. Spread on crescent rolls where they connect. Mix raspberry preserves with fresh raspberries. Top cream cheese mixture with it. Fold small part of triangles over fruit mixture. (Curve with you want to make a candy cane. )Top with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 16-20 minutes. Mix powder sugar and milk together. Pour over warm braid.

Note:

  • You could substitute strawberries and strawberry preserves. If you like blueberries more, I think it would be fine without the preserved. It reminds me of this crescent roll recipe.
