NOTES & TIPS

  • The cream cheese filling is not going to melt. It will hold together during baking, so add as much or as little as you’d like.
  • Use parchment paper when baking so that the danish do not stick to your baking pan.
  • You can switch up the flavor by using a different flavor of jam or jelly.
  • Make the dough the night before and keep the cream cheese mixture in the fridge, then put it all together in the morning and bake in the morning.
