STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE DANISHES

These Strawberry Cream Cheese Danishes are an easy breakfast or dessert that's perfect for summer!

These Strawberry Cream Cheese Danishes really couldn't be easier: they're made with store bough puff pastry (I always keep a box or two in the freezer for quick fixes!), a simple cream cheese mixture and topped with fresh strawberries.

STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE DANISHES

For the topping, I warm up a little strawberry jam to brush over top ? it's an easy way to keep those strawberries looking and tasting their best even if the danishes aren't devoured immediately (although I'm not sure why they wouldn't be!). Feel free to use raspberries and raspberry jam, blueberries and blueberry jam, or a mixture of fruit with any jam or jelly of your choice. The options are endless!

If you prefer, you can definitely add the strawberries before baking, they will just be quite soft and they won't be quite as pretty. For me personally? I love the texture the fresh strawberries give to these danishes!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 4oz (1/2 package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 sheet puff pastry (1/2 box), cold

  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and egg yolk with an electric mixer until smooth.
