Easy cream cheese Danish recipe

easy cream cheese danish recipe
Danishes are one of my kids favorite breakfast foods. They are quick and easy to make and always turn out delicious. What I like about this recipe is that you can make them with the jam of your choice, feel free to try as many flavors possible. They can even be made in a mini size portion and be served as a dessert for your parties.
