Quick Danish-y pastries!

Cream Cheese Squares (
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup margarine, melted
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Press one can of the crescent rolls into the bottom of the prepared pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, 1 cup of sugar, and vanilla until smooth and creamy. Spread over the crescent layer. Unroll the second can of crescent rolls and lay them on top of the cream cheese layer. Do not press down. Pour the melted margarine over the entire pan. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is crisp and golden.
I've had this recipe for about a year and we really enjoy it. I usually half the recipe and bake it in a 9-inch round pan. You don't need all the melted butter; just a few tablespoons to cover the top crust.

I love cream cheese danishes and this is an incredible version that is pretty cheap and very tasty! It is best served cold. Oh....and a little goes a long way!
