The ingredients you'll need are: 2 blocks of cream cheese, vanilla extract, one egg (separated), ground cinnamon and two cans of crescent rolls.
To start, grease a 13x9 pan (or maybe a 11X9 which I think is what I have). Roll out one can of crescent rolls on the bottom on the pan.
Next we'll make the filling. Place two 8oz blocks of cream cheese in bowl.
Add in 3/4 cups of sugar
Add in 1 tsp of vanilla
Add in egg yolk. Be sure to save the egg white as we'll need that a little later.
Mix up all ingredients in mixing bowl until smooth. It'll look a little something like this. (If you don't have a stand mixer, I would highly suggest it! A lot less clean up than a hand mixer.)
Spread that yummy cream cheese mixture on top of the first crescent rolls.
Take the second can of crescent rolls and unroll on top of the cream cheese mixture.
Now it's time to use those egg whites. Whisk egg whites in small bowl until they become frothy. Then pour over the crescent rolls.
This is where Starbucks really gets a run for their money...cinnamon sugar topping! Mix together 1/4 cup of sugar with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar all over the top! If you're feeling a little nutty, you can put 1/2 cup of your favorite chopped nuts on top as well. They provide a really nice crunch to the danish.
Get that bad boy in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
This is the kind of magic that exits the oven after 30 minutes! This serves 6-8 people so it's great for a breakfast gathering or just for an easy weekday breakfast. ENJOY!
