CREAM CHEESE DANISH WITH FRUIT

I like a very good cheese danish, it’s actually one in all my weaknesses in terms of breakfast pastries! those cream cheese danishes are short to make and flavor a lot higher than the grocery save range.

I tend to be greater of a savory breakfast person, but the one morning candy i'm able to’t face up to is cream cheese danish. That buttery pastry and cheesecake style filling get me each time! Making cream cheese danish at home is definitely pretty smooth and is an excellent addition to any breakfast or brunch.
