I found this awesome recipe for a Cheese Danish over at Laurens Latest . I just couldn't resist. I just had to make it.  It was so simple and fast to make. When making  mine, I added a cup of fresh blueberries. Boy was it good! I think there is only 3 slices left.

Blueberry Cheese Danish

Easy Cheese Danish
yield: 8 servings

1 tube crescent rolls
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup powdered sugar
4+ tablespoons heavy cream
splash vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla. Set aside. Pop open crescent roll dough and unroll, leaving crescents in rectangles. On an ungreased baking sheet, lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise. Dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan.
Press edges together to even out edges and seal any holes. Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide.
Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough.
 Fold 1/2 inch dough pieces up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern. You may have excess dough once you reach the end of the danish, so fold them in as best as you can.
 Bake for 20-30 minutes or until filling is set and crescent dough is golden in color. Cool before removing   from baking sheet.
Once danish has cooled, remove to serving platter. In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and cream to create icing. You may need to add more cream to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danish.
Cut into pieces and serve.

You need to stop over at Laurens blog and  check it out . She has some really awesome recipes.
