This Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish is an easy to prepare breakfast treat that takes just 10 minutes of active preparation time. It is a weekend breakfast your family will love.
Cream cheese filling, fresh raspberries, and jam are rolled up in store-bought crescent roll dough to make these Raspberry Cream Cheese Danishes. The fresh fruity flavor from the raspberries contrasts perfectly with the cream cheese making these danishes irresistible. They would be an excellent addition to a brunch.
