Cooking time




  • 1 package pillsbury biscuit dough

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 8oz softened cream cheese

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 21oz cherry pie filling

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • Glaze
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 tbs softened butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 tbs milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cream together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract
  • Separate the biscuits in half so there will be 16 biscuits. I just peeled them apart by hand.
  • Place the 16 biscuit halves on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Press down on a 1/4 cup measuring cup on the center of each of the biscuits
  • Spread 1 tbs of the cream cheese mixture on each of the biscuits and about 3 of the cherries from the cherry pie filling.
  • Bake for 12-18 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  • To make the glaze whisk all of the “Glaze” ingredients together, if too thick add a little more milk.
  • Let the danishes cool then drizzle the glaze on top. If desired sprinkle with powdered sugar over the top! Enjoy

    How would you go about storing them? Air tight container in room or in fridge? Thanks so much.

  2. What do you do with the 1/4 cup of powdered sugar (not in the glaze)? Thanks.

    These are delicious. I used strawberry preserves. I skipped the butter and just used milk in the glaze.

  4. Found this idea from YouTube and so glad I did!! We didn’t have time to make the glaze and these were still a hit!! Can’t wait to try them with strawberries next!!
