Nutella & Cheese Danish


 


If you need a quick, easy and delicious dessert, this ones got ya covered!  The use of canned croissant dough makes this recipe come together in a snap.  The center is nutella and cream cheese that is baked up perfectly in the flaky dough.  You could also serve this up for a breakfast treat too!


Ingredients:

1 (8 ounce) can croissant dough (crescent rolls)
1 (8 ounce) block of cream cheese, softened
2/3 C powdered sugar
3 Tbs. Nutella
some extra Nutella, melted
a little powdered sugar



Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease a cookie sheet.


Cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar.


Mix in Nutella until combined; set aside.


Unroll croissant dough and arrange it into a circle onto the cookie sheet.


Spread the filling along the inside of the dough.


Take the dough and flip it over the filling; press to seal the edges.


 Cut the excess edges off and place them over the rest of the openings.


Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes; until golden brown.


Drizzle on the melted nutella and sprinkle with powdered sugar.


Slice, serve and enjoy!

      I'm so happy you enjoyed it :) I waited to melt my nutella until the very end and I only did it for seconds in the microwave.

  43. hi, I just tried the Danish, they are so delicious. Can you tell me what kind of consistency is the right for the filling and is your dough getting real cross? Anyway, hope you can answer my questions, my family loved the "snack" and my husband took another piece, but he had to leave out the diner :))), cannot wait to try the recipe for friends, will be a total hit!

    1. Hi Martha, I'm so happy to hear that you all enjoyed the danish! The consistency of the filling is a little creamy and fluffy when mixed and then once it baked it became a little airy. I'm not quite sure what you mean about cross...can you explain?

  44. Will be making this Tuesday night for a work lun h on Wednesday. How should it be stored overnight?should it be refrigerated? Is it meant to
    Be served warm?

  45. I tried it with both croissant and puff pastry dough. Liked puff pastry much better (although it takes a few more minutes to bake). Also added crushed walnuts to the cream cheese and Nutella mix for a more nuttier filling. Liked it, too. Couldn't figure out how to melt Nutella to the point that it could be drizzled (microwave did not help).

  47. Just about anything with Nutella is thumbs up with me.:) I think i could probably put it on eggs instead of catsup and still find it delicious. :) This recipe sounds so yummy! <3
