AIMEE'S CREAM CHEESE DANISH

This recipe was given to me by my Mom.  When I was a teenager, my Mom used to have a prayer breakfast once a week for my friends and me.  This dish was often on the rotation and it is not only easy, but it is extremely delicious!

  • 2 packages crescent rolls
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg, separated (place the yolk in one bowl and the egg white in another)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pie filling; cherry, blueberry or your desired flavor

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease 9 x 13 pan and press one package of crescent rolls onto the bottom, pinching seams together.  In a large bowl, cream together cream cheese, egg yolk and sugar.  Spread over crescent rolls.  Pour pie filling over cheese mixture, then top with second package of crescent rolls, again pinching seams together.  Whisk egg white, and brush on top.  Sprinkle with some sugar, or a cinnamon sugar mixture.  Bake for 30 minutes or until brown on top.  The Danish cuts better when cool; it is so delicious when it is hot, but your filling will be a bit runny.
