Cream Cheese Danish

November 18, 2011

I have to be honest. I am stumped. I wrote this post 3 times and nothing sounds right.  

So, I decided on something short and sweet....
This is a brand new recipe for me.  Cream cheese danish....you must try this, it's fabulously easy and just plain scrumptious.  Perfect for breakfast, brunch, dessert or hey, just to snack on.   

Another great one for the holidays!

    1. 100% homemade danishes are good, but there are a lot of times when I crave this but do not have all the time to spend in the kitchen.
      This is a great way to beat that craving and quickly. They look heavenly-yum!
