HOW TO MAKE CRESCENT ROLL DANISHES

Why do you soften the cream cheese before baking?

It’s really just a simple way to have the crescent roll dessert bake up quicker and easier. When the cream cheese is softened, it melts faster than if it were hard or frozen.

Can you put parchment paper in the oven?

Yep, it’s one of the reasons that it’s my handy tool in the kitchen. Not only does it keep my food items from sticking but it makes clean up a total breeze, too.

How do you store cream cheese crescent rolls?

When you have leftovers of this simple crescent dessert, you just need to store in an airtight container for later. This is a simple way to keep them fresh for as long as possible by keeping the air out.

Once you’re ready to eat, you can just reheat for a few seconds in the microwave and enjoy.
