Ingredients for this simple and delicious Cheese Danish recipe

  • cream cheese- can use dairy or non-dairy cream cheese
  • egg yolk- gives the filling a creamy texture and helps the cream cheese from not spreading during baking time
  • cane sugar- helps sweeten up the danishes
  • vanilla- adds a lovely flavor
  • fresh juicy grapes- add both color, texture and flavor
  • frozen puff pastry- frozen puff pastry works best for this recipe, simply let them thaw on the counter for 45 minutes before using.
  • egg wash- I use the leftover egg whites and brush it over the pastry before baking time to help give the danishes a lovely golden brown color

Tools you will need

You won’t need anything fancy to make these cheese danish. I recommend using an electric mixer to really combine the ingredients for the cream cheese filling, however, you can also mix it by hand if you don’t have one!

Directions

  1. Thaw puff pastry according to package instructions. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.

  5. Then, using the egg white, dip the basting brush and outline each square with the wash. Next, take each corner and fold it in twice until each corner touches the filling.
  6. Option to add grape jelly to the cheese filling, and then brush the outer edges once again with the egg white wash.
