Crescent Roll Dough: I like to use the already made crescent dough sheets. If you can’t locate them in your area, you can simply use a regular package of crescent rolls. You will need to roll them out into 1 full rectangle and seal the seams together with your fingers. Then, you can follow the recipe as written.

Plain Greek Yogurt: Feel free to use sour cream as a substitute.

How to Make:

  • First, grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Then, roll out a sheet of crescent roll dough and spread it on top the bottom of the pan.
  • Remember, if you are using individual crescent rolls dough, roll the entire package of dough out to form a rectangle. Then, pinch the seams together.
  • Next, make the filling. Be sure your cream cheese is softened before mixing!
  • Top the cream cheese filling with the second sheet of crescent roll dough. Again, pinching the seams together if you are using the individual rolls of dough.
  • Finally, bake!
  • Once it’s done, make the icing and drizzle on top of the cooled danish.

Storage: Store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator. Use/eat within 2-3 days.
