Bake flaky, buttery cherry-cheese danish right at home. Better than the bakery!
Combine dough ingredients and knead well. Allow to rise for half an hour.
Roll the dough out thinly. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into squares.
Mix the ﬁlling ingredients well, by hand or with a mixer.
Place one tablespoon of ﬁlling in the center of each dough square.
Fold each corner of the dough square toward the center, and pinch closed. Alternatively, you can just pinch two opposite corners in the center for a different look.
If desired, place some cherry pie ﬁlling on the dough square together with the cheese ﬁlling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
To keep the dough corners from opening during baking, place a toothpick through the dough corners in the center to hold them in place. Remove after baking. You can sprinkle confectioners’ sugar on the ﬁnished, cooled danishes before serving for a more professional presentation.
