Strawberry Cream Cheese Danish -These cheesecake bars with a cream cheese center and strawberry filling look as impressive as they taste. No one will suspect just how easy they are to make!

Ingredients

  • 3 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 can (15 oz) strawberry pie filling
  • 2 cans refrigerated crescent rolls
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds

For the glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with granulated sugar and almond extract for several minutes until smooth.
  3. Unroll the first can of crescent rolls and press into the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. Press the seams together. Pour cheesecake filling over the dough.
  4. Open pie filling and spread over cheesecake layer.
  5. Unroll second can of crescent rolls and before laying over pie filling, try to stretch them out just a little bit. Place over top of pie filling, and carefully pinch seams together if possible. Brush with melted butter and add sliced almonds.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and almond extract for the glaze. Pour over cooled danish. Refrigerate for at least one hour or more.

Notes

  • Pie Filling- swap out the strawberry for cherry or blueberry with delicious results!
  • Crescent Rolls- if you can find the crescent roll sheets, those work great. Otherwise, using the original crescent rolls works too, just press the seams together.
  • Chill- these bars are best when chilled completely. Make the night before and serve for breakfast.
