  8. Johnnie McNew says

    I want to try this recipe for cream cheese crecent rolls !


  9. Karen says

    Pillsbury now has crescent dough sheets. This would work well with recipe and lots of others using the rolls.


  10. Karen says

    I have made these for years. I use one half teaspoon of lemon juice in my Cream Cheese. I roll out my dough into one large rectangle spread the cheese and bring both long sides to the middle and slice into 10 or 12 strips


  11. Diana Luna says

    They look delicious I can’t wait to try the recipe.


  12. Jim Hanco*ck says

  13. Jennifer says

    Oh Wow! I am making this with a twist of cranberry (craisins) for Thanksgiving!


  14. Tracey says

    Is that granulated white sugar or confectionary sugar? Thanks!


    • Lisa M. says

      white sugar 🙂


  15. Heather S. says

    I think this a a great idea! I am going to try using
    canned biscuits that are flaky for a more light crust


  16. dan glanowski says

    With the chive cream cheese and bacon, might want to add just a bit of maple syrup. Either to the cream cheese or as a drizzle to compliment the bacon.


  17. Marcia says

    I would love ot make these,what about a picture of how the 2 crescent rolls are suppose to sometimes I think I am visual challenged..:)
    thank you


    • janet pike says

      I don’t understand either!


    • Tammie says

      i agreee


  18. Emily Clark says

    I’m going to try this using Puff Pastry and see how it turns outs. I tend not to like things that use crescent rolls as the base.


  19. Lana says

    You can substitute blueberry, Apple and cherry pie filling for the cream cheese or half cream cheese half pie filling. Yummy!


  20. nancygrossman says

    I can’t use sugar so how about only cream cheese and after put a,dollop of sugar free preserve.
    Gonna try tonight


  21. Connie says

    Can I use puff pastry?


  22. Margaret Davis says

    Look wonderful I can hardly wait to try them.


  23. Lisa says

    A how to video would be great and appreciated!


    • Tammie says

      i agreee


  24. Jim says

    How much butter is 2 TB?


    • Country Baker says

      2TB =2Tablespoons 2TBSP


    • Laurie says

      Jim, TB is abbreviated for tablespoon. You will oftentimes see TB and tb. The tb would be teaspoon.


      • Sandy says

        Laurie, tb would still be TaBlespoon, not Teaspoon. Usually tsp = teaspoon and tbsp = tablespoon whether in upper case or lower case. Your post above may have been a typo. 🙂


    • Chris says

      2 TB butter is a tad less than 30 grams


  25. Annette Horn says

    I make this a lot in a baking dish. Place one can of the crescents in the bottom. Add the filling (I also add 1 egg) and then add another sheet of crescents on top and bake. It’s delicious! I might try like this because they are so pretty for Christmas morning after I get home from work 🙂


    • Linda Holmer-Krupp says

      I added apple pie filling on top of the cream cheese filling on one pan and on the second pan I added cherry pie filling (made my own apple and cherry pie filling but canned will work too) fantastic everyone like it better than with just cream cheese filling


  26. Michelle Culton says

    I’m going to try these using pineapple cream cheese. And raspberry jam on top of the original recipe would be good too.


  27. Will S. says

    I’m going to try this with 1/2 the cheese and topped with cherry or blueberry pie filling. 🙂


  28. Sandra Akridge says

    Put orange flavor in cream cheese filling and dried cranberries on the dough before you roll up. Orange cranberry Danish !


  29. Pat says

    I plan to try these very soon. They look fabulous.


  30. Christine Ivy says

    You could also add a couple teaspoons of preserves such as raspberry or peach. Yummy!


    • birgit says

      do you add jam or pie filling before or after baking


  31. marge says

    Never mind, I reread the directions and saw where to use it. Sorry!


  32. shirley says

    after the 8 squares you then say rectangles does that mean you put 2 of the squares together making 4 rectangles ?


  33. Trish says

    Yummy! I think I will try reducing the amount of cream cheese mixture and adding some cherry or blueberry pie filling.


  34. Sherri McArdle says

    Oh I am so making these and soon; then at Christmas when the family is all here.


  35. Bunny Griffon says

    Love crescents. Can’t wait to try these.

    If you don t need so many danishes, just use one tube of crescent rolls and save the leftover cream cheese filling for another time.
