Start your morning right with these oh-so-easy Cherry Danish with Cream Cheese Glaze. They make the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee, latte or hot tea.
Start your Day with a Cherry Danish with Cream Cheese Glaze
When Rhodes Bread Company invited me to write a guest post for them, I knew I wanted to try some sort of pastry using their dough. A fruity cherry danish with a cream cheese glaze was the first thing that came to mind. I was looking for a way to simplify breakfast preparation, so, I made these cherry danish using their frozen dinner roll dough. The dough was perfectly portioned to divide, roll and twist making a delicious edible basket to hold the cherry pie filling. After rising they look so incredible and they taste even better. To finish, drizzle the top with a decadent cream cheese glaze, and they're guaranteed to disappear in a snap.
Sweet Rolls and Danish on the Breakfast Menu
Sweet rolls and pastries are always a pleasing addition to the breakfast or brunch menu. They pair equally well with a steamy cup of coffee, hot tea, or a glass of cold milk, if you are so inclined. I really love making and serving them. Another easy pastry you may like to try are these Nutella Pop Tarts from Recipe Girl.

- Using a tsp make a deep indention in the center of each dough twist. Fill with 1 tsp of cherry pie filling.
- Brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg wash.
- Preheat the oven to 375°F . Bake for 18-20 minutes until the edges are golden.
- To make the glaze: Use a hand mixer to whip together the whipped cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, almond extract and milk.
