Strawberry Danish Crescent Rolls

These rolls were absolutely delicious and very easy to make.

For the LIFE of me I couldn’t figure out how they explained to roll up the Grands Crescents, so I made it up as I went along and everything turned out WONDERFULLY!

As long as you seal the edges so your cream cheese doesn’t leak out, YOU’RE GOLDEN…Much like the Rolls when they are done 😉

Strawberry Danish Crescent Rolls

Not exactly how I imagined them turning...but REEEAAALLLLY close

Not exactly how I imagined them turning...but REEEAAALLLLY close


4 oz. or 1/2 Cup Softened Cream Cheese

1/4 Cup Sugar

1/2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 Can Grands Crescent Rolls [4 per package]

Jam – To Taste, I used my homemade Strawberry ❤


1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar

1/4 – 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

1 – 2 Teaspoons Milk [Add milk until desired consistency is reached]

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together Cream Cheese, Sugar and Lemon Juice on Low speed until fully incorporated, wiping down sides of bowl as needed.
  3. Separate dough into 4 sections and spread 1/4 of cream cheese mixture on middle of dough.
  4. Roll up crescents starting with the long side, reaching towards the point. This is where you need to be a little creative. On ungreased cookie sheet stretch out the dough in your hands so it spans about 10 inches and slowly coil, tucking end underneath and sealing up any openings.
  5. Wash hands and poke deep hole down the center of the Danish and scoop in desired amount of Jam.
  6. Insert into oven and cook for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven time. Danishes will be a deep golden brown and hold shape when finished.
  7. While Danishes are cooking mix together in a small bowl Powdered Sugar, Vanilla and Milk until your desired consistency is reached.
  8. Let cool slightly and drizzle finished danishes with Glaze.  ENJOY ❤

I adapted the recipe slightly but here is where the inspiration came from. Original Danish Crescent Recipe

Chef’s Tip: Since it’s just Chris and I here I like to use only two crescents at a time and I wrap the other two up in tinfoil for later use…although I wouldn’t recommend leaving them more than a day in the fridge with the broken seal as they tend to lose some of their ability to rise after 24 hours.
