Individual Cheese & Strawberry Danish

So, I tried out a recipe for mini Danishes using crescent rolls, they don’t taste 100% like the real thing of course but they actually turned out delicious!! These would be good at breakfast because I added strawberry jam to them as well as the cream cheese filling.

Ingredients:
2, 8 oz. cans of crescent rolls (I used reduced fat and they were great!)
1, 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. sour cream
3/4 tsp. vanilla
Strawberry jam (or any flavor you like)

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350.
Take your crescent rolls out of the can, leaving them in their cylinder shape, place them on a plate and freeze for 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, and vanilla until smooth.
Cut 1/4 inch slices of the crescent rolls like you would cut refrigerated cookie dough.
Place on baking sheet and create an indent in the middle with your thumb.
Place 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture, followed by a 1/2 teaspoon of jam, and then another 1/2 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture on top so jam does not fall off.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Add a little extra jam to the top right out of the oven.
