    Default Cherry Cheese Danish

    This is my take on a Hungry Girl recipe!

    Cherry Cheese Danish

    1 package RF crescent rolls
    4oz FF cream cheese, at room temperature
    1c cherry pie filling
    1/4c oats
    2 Tbsp Splenda
    1 Tbsp vanilla coffee mate
    1/4 tsp almond extract

    Preheat oven to 350.

    In medium bowl combine cream cheese, oats, Splenda, coffee mate, and almond extract. Stir until smooth. Fold in cherries and set aside.

    Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Seperate crescent rolls into triangles. Spoon an equal amount of cherry mix onto middle of triangle. First fold the 2 end corners together. Then fold the middle corner up and firmly seal in cherry mix.

    Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

    Serves 8

    1 danish = 3.5 points

    I saw that, Becca. Entemann's raspberry cheese danish is a major trigger for me. It looks like a great swap. How is your's different and how did you find Hungry Girls to taste? I haven't tried it yet but I saved the recipe.

    I made it today! It was fantastic! I'm not usually one for FF cream cheese, I don't care for the taste. This however tasted nothing like anything diet or lowfat. Soooo creamy! It got rave reviews from my husband and son!

    HG's recipe called for crescent roll dough that you could "braid" together and slice it into strips of danish. I couldn't find it, so I used the crescent rolls that come in the can as perforated triangles that you break apart. HG's recipe also has icing, which I did make but didn't like, so omitted it from my recipe.

    The only thing I changed from the filling was HG's recipe called for vanilla soy milk and I had vanilla coffee mate!
