Lemon Cream Cheese Danish

I love me some Cream Cheese Danish. This recipe calls for store bought puff pastry and if you have never used it you will want to give it a try. It is very simple to use and makes for an easy recipe. This time I added some lemon zest to the cream cheese and it made for a light lemon flavor, yum. I really don't like a heavy lemon flavor so this was just right. 

Ingredients: one sheet of puff pastry 8 oz. cream cheese 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla zest of one lemon (very fine with no white, a microplane is best to use) (the larger the lemon the more lemon flavor) parchment paper large jelly roll pan
Egg wash: 1 egg, 1 tablespoon water
Glaze: 1/2 cup powdered sugar 2  teaspoons milk 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and zest of lemon until smooth and creamy.
2. Roll out puff pastry. It usually comes in a square so just flour a surface and roll it as even of a square as you can. Visually divide into thirds and them cut sides into strips one…
