Easy Cream Cheese Danish

I found this recipe quite a while ago and have been saving it for a rainy day. You can use any flavor of jam (I used peach). The recipe makes a dozen scrumptious cheese danishes. These would be perfect for a brunch, or a brial/baby shower. It's a keeper!

1 tube crescent roll dough
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. sugar
2 T. lemon juice
8 tsp. jam or preserves (your favorite flavor)

Open crescent roll dough and separate in to 4 rectangular sections (you will need to seal the perforations diagonally down the center). Roll each in to a 7x3 inch rectangle (will need to flour it lightly before rolling). Mix cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice until smooth. Spread mixture over the top of each rectangle. Roll each rectangle up from the long side. Cut each roll in to 3 sections (like a cinnamon roll). Place on greased cookie sheet and smash down each roll and make an indentation in the center. Place a dollop of jam in the center of each roll. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

You can drizzle glaze over the top if desired. For glaze, mix 1/4 c. powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1-2 tsp. milk. Mix well and drizzle on rolls.
