While I love a good shortcut when it comes to baking, Homemade Blueberry Cream Cheese Danishes from scratch are 100% worth it! They’re filled with a cream cheese filling and topped with fresh summer blueberries!
“This recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.”
Cream cheese danishes have been a favorite of mine since I worked at the coffee shop years ago. I would stop for my breaks when I worked there, cash in on one of my free coffees of the day and sit down to savor one of the super tasty cream cheese danishes before clocking back in for the rest of my shift.
It’s been years since then, I don’t get to enjoy them like I use to but they still hold a special place in my heart.
So I thought they would be kinda perfect to share with y’all for my last recipe for #SummerDessertWeek! This week has flown by and I hope that y’all have been loving all of the recipes that we’ve been sharing with y’all.
Now let’s get onto these danishes! The Cream Cheese Danish that I fell in love with didn’t have blueberries but I’m crazy about blueberries this time of year, so I just had to add them!
I’ve got the recipe down below for y’all but I wanted to toss in some step by step photos to show y’all how I like to roll these danishes.
- Cut 1-inch strips that are 15 inches long. You should get about 10 strips.
- On a parchment, or silicone sheet lined baking sheet, start wrapping the dough into danishes. (You can wrap them on a cutting board and then transfer them too)
- To wrap the, press the end of one of the dough strips to the pan. wrap 1-2 inches of the dough around the end and press the dough down to create a flat middle for the filling.
- Loosely twist the dough and wrap around the center to create the danish.
- Repeat until all are done, place danishes about 1 inch apart on a large baking sheet or 2 smaller baking pans.
After the first rest, make the filling and fill each danish.
Add blueberries to each danish. I added 8 but you can add more if you’d like because they do spread out when they bake.
- Cover them with plastic and let rest for 30 minutes.
- Remove plastic.
Oh I think they’re just so pretty!
Brush them with a bit of egg wash and bake for 20 minutes! Keep an eye on them though! Don’t let them burn!
Remove from oven and let cool completely. When they come out of the oven, they will be super puffy, both the danish and the cream cheese filling but as they cool they will fall back down like they should be!!
Making a bit of icing and drizzle the icing over the cooled danishes!
