I’m not sure if this is breakfast or dessert

It’s berry creaminess has just the right amount of sweet without being cloying like many bakery danishes

Divide the dough in half, according to the shape of your dish, you can make it square or into a long rectangle

Pinch the perforations to seal dough piece or use a crescent roll dough sheet

Oh my Publix, why don’t you carry crescent roll dough sheets!   😩

Line your dish with parchment for easy removal and place bottom crust on top of parchment

Bake the bottom crust for 8-10 minutes until its beginning to brown

    Oh my yumminess, Jenna! I’ve made a version without berries, that has sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top, and one with cherry pie filling, but this version using fresh berries, sounds wonderful! I can’t wait to try it!
