Mini Cherry Cheesecake Danishes

  • 1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • Flour for dusting


  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp milk


  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Splash of vanilla
  • 1 can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix powdered sugar and milk; set aside. Open container of rolls, do not unroll them. Use a sharp serrated knife to cut through the dough; make 10 slices. Lay each slice on a parchment lined cooking sheet. Use a measuring cup to flatten each roll and build a small wall around the edges. (Can use a drop of flour to prevent sticking and press with fingertips too).

Bake for 18-20 minutes; let cool and drizzle with glaze.
