Easy Homemade Cheese Danish

What’s better than the smell of freshly baked Danish? I really can’t think of any other dessert that makes my whole family (no exaggeration here), wait anxiously for the treats to cool down so they can have a taste.

They love it, and so do I. There is absolutely no way we can all have horrible taste, is there?

I am a huge fan of these amazingly delicious cheese Danish. They are unbelievably tasty.

These homemade cheese Danish will most definitely taste way better than those you buy at your local supermarket without really knowing whether they are authentic cream Danishes or not.


They will also come in handy when you have a hectic morning (we all know how hectic mornings can get) or are simply pressed for time.

Serving suggestions

These cheese Danish are great for breakfast, brunch or served as a dessert.

If you serve them for breakfast, they can easily be taken to-go. Perfect breakfast treat if you ask me. The cheese Danish is also great for serving a crowd.

The plates will probably be empty if you make them for your holiday brunches. In case you like experimenting in the kitchen like me, you can consider adding in pie filling to make them with more flavor options.

Why frozen puff pastry?

In this recipe, I will use frozen puff pastry. I am not a big fan of store-bought pastry, and I don’t advocate for them but since this particular one is not so easy to make, I prefer to buy it.

You have the option of making your own puff pastry but the process is way too long and it is too much work but if you feel like you’re up for the challenge, go for it.

Are they really that easy to make?

Definitely yes!


This recipe will blow your mind.  It is one of my simplest recipes and it is super cheesy and delicious. The other good thing about it is you’ll only need 5 ingredients, my kind of treat.

The store-bought puff pastry makes it a treat you can make in just about 30 minutes. Quick and easy dessert, right?

This recipe makes the best cheese Danish I have ever tasted.

You don’t have to take it from me, here is how you can make your own easy homemade cheese Danish.
