  • Cooking and Prep: 2 h
  • Serves: 16
  • Contains:

Bake flaky, buttery cherry-cheese danish right at home. Better than the bakery!

Ingredients (16)

Dough

Filling

Start Cooking

For the Dough

  1. Combine dough ingredients and knead well. Allow to rise for half an hour. 

  2. Roll the dough out thinly. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into squares.

For the Filling

  1. Mix the filling ingredients well, by hand or with a mixer.

To Assemble Danishes

  1. Place one tablespoon of filling in the center of each dough square. 

  2. 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. 

  3. If desired, place some cherry pie filling on the dough square together with the cheese filling. 

  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Tip:

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.

    Very Disappointing

    I took a risk with this recipe since it had no reviews and I was sorely disappointed with the results. The recipe said to bake for forty five minutes, I set the timer and even checked on my danishes 10 minutes early. Apparently the timing was completely off because they were very over baked and most of them were not edible. It was two hours of work down the drain.

    So, when you write 2 ounces yeast - is this fresh or dry? I am making this right now but think I messed up :( Thanks!

    It is referring to instant dry yeast.
