Easy Blackberry Cheese Danish!




Homemade Blackberry Cheese Danish
This is pretty easy and fresh blackberries are affordable, an amazing Sunday morning breakfast options as well. ~ Angela

1 tube Pillsbury crescent rolls
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup fresh blackberries

for the icing-
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla. Set aside.
Pop open crescent roll dough and unroll, leaving crescents in rectangles. 


On an ungreased baking sheet or silpat, lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise. Dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan.  Press edges together to even out edges and seal any holes. Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough. Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide. Top with fresh blackberries. 

Fold 1/2 inch dough pieces up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern. You may have excess dough once you reach the end of the danish, so fold them in as best as you can. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until filling is set and crescent dough is golden in color. Cool before removing from baking sheet.

Once danish has cooled, remove to serving platter. In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and cream to create icing. You may need to add more cream to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danish. Cut into pieces and serve.

How About a New Side Dish This Week? Roasted Butternut Squash

I have become a believer in the fresher the food the better!  So, I am trying to buy lots of our family food in the produce area of the supermarket rather than boxes and bags.  Here is something that many families have never tried- Roasted Butternut Squash, which is a great winter side dish. ~ Angela



1 Butternut squash- peeled, seeded and cut into 1 inch cubes
2 Cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Toss squash with olive oil and garlic in a large bowl.  Season with salt and black pepper.  Arrange coated squash on a baking sheet.  Roast in a preheated oven until squash is tender and light browned.  25 to 30 minutes.

Quick Tip:  You can peel and cut up the squash the night before so it is ready to go into the oven when you get home.
