CREAM CHEESE DANISH
Breads
Contributed by: Freda Shockley
Ingredients:
  • for the danish:
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk, scalded
  • 1/4 cup sugar (rounded)
  • 1/4 lb. butter
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 31/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • for the filling:
  • 2 large packages cream cheese
  • 1?2 stick butter
  • 3?4 box powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
for the danish:
Soften yeast in warm water. Combine milk, sugar, butter and salt; cool to lukewarm. Add 11?2 cups flour; beat well. Beat in yeast and egg. Gradually add remaining flour to form soft dough, beating well. Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover and let rise until double (11?2 to 2 hours).
Turn out on lightly floured surface and knead. Pull apart to make about 15 evenly sized balls. On floured surface, roll out one ball at a time to about 1?8 inch thick (like pastry crust). Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

for the filling:
Mix filling ingredients together. Spoon filling into middle of pastry and spread to within one inch of edge. Fold edges over toward the middle (but not all the way). Place on cookie sheet and let rise about 45 minutes. Bake until lightly brown. Cool on cookie sheets.
