I have a fun dessert and/or breakfast recipe for you guys to try for the holiday season. This Candy Cane Cherry and Cream Cheese Danish is not only super cute, it’s pretty easy to make 🙂 Not to mention, it’s festive!  I ran to Target and spent less than $10 on everything I needed, I love the ease of using the canned pie filling in the recipe.

You only need a few ingredients, which you might already have in your refrigerator or pantry since it’s baking season.

The “hardest” part is shaping the crescent rolls into a candy cane, which isn’t really hard at all 🙂 I kept 2 of the crescents rolls separate, so I could use those for my stripes later.

You could use a knife and make your edges all perfect, but I figured since we were going to be baking it away and covering it with delicious cream cheese and fruit, that wasn’t needed.

Once you put on the cream cheese and powdered sugar mixture down, you add on the delicious cherries.

After the cherries are on you will add stripes to the candy cane.

Use the remaining crescent rolls (the two that you set aside earlier) and cut them into small strips.

Add the strips along the candy cane.

When you are done baking it, you will add on the powdered sugar glaze.

Now, here’s the recipe!  Make sure to print or pin it so that you can make it again and again 🙂  Think of all the fun seasonal shapes we can make…
