Raspberry Danish is flaky with a creamy cheesecake filling and sweet fresh raspberries drizzled with icing.




  • 2 pastry rolls (premade in the frozen foods section or homemade)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 ounces raspberries
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds


  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add cream cheese, 1 egg (I use just the white), 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon lemon, and 1/3 cup sugar. Use a hand or stand mixer to mix ingredients until creamy and smooth.
  3. Lay out your pastry sheets and cut into squares using a pastry/pizza cutter. 2 pastry sheets will give you 12.
  4. Fold in the sides of each square towards the center and pinch it to hold. Repeat until all 12 are complete.
  5. Add a spoonful of cream cheese filling to each the center of each pastry.
  6. Add 3 fresh raspberries to each and sprinkle sliced almonds over the top.
  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until they just begin to get a golden brown on top.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes. 
  9. As the pastries cook, you can whip up your icing. Whisk together the confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Drizzle the icing on top of Danish and serve!
