Celebrate the day with a Raspberry Nut Cheese Danish in hand! We've taken this classic pastry sweet and turned it into a seasonal favorite you're gonna want to sit down and enjoy with a tall glass of milk.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (17.3-ounce) box frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 5 teaspoons milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place puff pastry on 2 baking sheets and unfold.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, egg, and vanilla until blended. Spread 1/2 the cream cheese mixture down center of each dough. Gently spread 1/2 the raspberry jam on top of cream cheese. Cut slits in dough 1 inch apart lengthwise down each side of filling. Crisscross strips over filling.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown; let cool 5 minutes, then remove to platter to finish cooling.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk remaining confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over danish and sprinkle with pecans.
