Check out our Glazed Strawberry Cream Cheese Danish recipe! I know you would usually have a danish for breakfast, but these are so yummy and delicious, I also listed it as a dessert. One side of my family has a deep rooted Czech background and they make treats like these and MANY more all of the time, FROM SCRATCH! Unfortunately, I didn’t get that high skill level so I have always just figured I would not be able to make things like danishes and kolaches (the real kind, with fruit). With this easy recipe, that takes you step by step, pretty much anyone can pull this off!
