DIY Chocolate Chip Danish

I’ve wanted to make a Danish-style pastry for months now, but I kept putting it off. I don’t know why. I finally did it and now I’m wondering why I didn’t do it sooner! Because I started with a Crescent Recipe Creations refrigerated seamless dough sheet, they are so easy to make. It takes 30 minutes from fridge to tummy, tops! How’s that for a quick treat? It takes longer to go to the store and buy a Danish!

DIY Chocolate Chip Danish

  • 1 can Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


Heat oven at 350°F. Line 17x12-inch cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or silicone nonstick baking mat.

Unroll dough onto lined cookie sheet; press dough into about 16x10-inch rectangle. With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut 1 1/2-inch-long slanted cuts 1 inch apart along both long sides of rectangle, leaving center of dough uncut. Make sure you have the same amount of cut strips on both sides.

In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread mixture on uncut center of dough. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cream cheese mixture.

Braid dough by crossing strips over filling, alternating from side to side. At end, trim off any overhanging dough.

Bake 20 to 22 minutes or just until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to bread board, serving platter or cooling rack. Cut into slices to serve. Best served the same day.
