Pineapple Cream Cheese Danishes

I remember eating Cream Cheese Danishes all the time when I was little. I love how creamy they are, perfectly balanced with a little sweetness, all atop a pillowy croissant. This weekend we made these delightful Pineapple Cream Cheese versions. The pineapple keeps these light and summery.

To make these more simple, I’m using refrigerated croissant dough. Start by taking it out of the tube. Do not separate the dough on the perforation. Keeping it in the tube form cut it into slices about an inch thick. Take each circle slice and press down with your thumb until it’s flatter but, still intact.

 

Next, you’ll need to make your cream cheese mixture. I used reduced fat cream cheese, vanilla extract, and Sugar 2.0. Blend well in a food processor. Then add a dollop of the mixture right in the middle of the dough. Smooth it out evenly. After that add a healthy spoonful of your Pineapple Preserves.

Bake in the oven at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes. They will be a nice golden brown when they’re ready!

Cool before serving.
