Nutella Cream Cheese Danishes

Thoughtfully Simple

These danishes are a great way to mix up your morning routine. Ultra creamy from the Nutella and cream cheese, the premade pastry dough gets an extra boost of flavor from melted butter and a cinnamon-sugar dusting. 

Directions

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with the cooking spray.

Stir the cinnamon and 4 tablespoons of the granulated sugar in a small bowl. In another small bowl, stir together the cream cheese and remaining sugar.

Unfold 1 pastry sheet onto a lightly floured work surface. Brush the pastry sheet with half the butter. Sprinkle with half the cinnamon-sugar mixture. With the short side facing you, cut the pastry sheet lengthwise into 6 strips. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet, making 12 strips in all.

Twist 1 pastry strip then coil into a spiral. Place the pastry onto the baking sheet. Brush the end of the spiral with the remaining butter and tuck tightly under the bottom of the pastry. Repeat with the remaining pastry strips. Place 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture and 1 teaspoon Nutella in the center of each pastry.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
