Cream Cheese and Cherry Danish

Cream cheese filling is laid atop a sheet of puff pastry,

Cream Cheese Filling
16oz softened cream cheese
2c white sugar
1T vanilla extract
Mix well and use a piping bag to lay it down.
This will do four large danishes.

Then both tart and sweet cherries combined in a filling and spread atop the cream cheese.
You'll need about 1/2c to 1c per danish depending on size.
The puff pastry is then closed and egg washed.
Coarse raw sugar can be sprinkled on the pastry before baking if desired
Or a thick powdered sugar glaze can be added after the danish has cooled down.
Bake in a 425° oven till the pastry is golden brown.

Sounds so simple yet sounds so delicious. Gonna save this one for our next gathering and serve as a dessert. Where baking is concerned, I like simple because I am NOT a baker :emoji_laughing:
