Take-out Tuesday, Blueberry Cheesecake Danish

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


I caught HH topping his with ice cream…    🍨


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


Mix powdered sugar and extracts with cream cheese and spread over baked layer


Top with berries and sprinkle with granulated sugar


Cover with remaining dough and pour melted butter on top and sprinkle with more granulated sugar


Bake until golden, and try not to drool πŸ˜‹ as the amazing aroma begins to fill your kitchen


Carefully lift out of baking dish and let it rest for a few minutes before cutting


You can cut it into triangles,


bars or skinny strips


or squares


This recipe is adapted from Love Foodies Blueberry Cheesecake Bars, which uses frozen berries

You can substitute any berries you like for the blueberries

    Breakfast, definitely! Everyone knows blueberries are the cure for what ails you, so why not start your day with something tasty! I was reading this wondering if puff pastry would work. What do you think?

  7. None of that skinny strip stuff for me-I’ll have a square please:@)

  10. Kitty says:

    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!

  11. Mary says:
