Easiest Cream Cheese Danish Ever

Easy is the word for this sweet little treat. So keep your PJs on, grab your cup of coffee and forget about Bojangles! This Cream cheese danish will hit the spot.

It only takes five ingredients that you probably already have.

2 large cans of crescent rolls (1/2 the remaining ingredients if using one large can or 2 small cans)
1 8oz cream cheese (room temp so it mixes easier)
1/2 cup of sugar
3/4 tsp of Vanilla
1 tsp sour cream

Carefully open the crescent rolls and avoid unrolling the dough.
Slice dough into 1/4 inch thick and place on cookies sheet.

Press the centers with your finger or spoon to create an indention.

Mix cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and sour cream together until smooth. ( I used a whisk but a mixer would work too but who wants the mess?)
Add about a tablespoon of mixture to the center of each piece of dough where you made the indentions. You can add more or less if you prefer.

Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Once they are done, you can add a homemade icing to drizzle over the tops.

1 cup powder sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp melted butter

Feel free to experiment a little and add some fruit of your choice before you add the cream cheese. Or maybe add a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Cinnamon? Ooops, I think Ive just come up with another idea. Oh my! Somebody stop me!
