Cheese Danish Coffee Cake

August 21, 2013
Crescent rolls with cheesecake filling and topped with cinnamon sugar. A cheese danish in coffee cake form!

Every person in my family is seriously obsessed with all things baked. And I'm not talking baked chicken, I'm talking baked goods here, people! Cake, cupcakes, muffins, doughnuts, brownies, pies, cookies... yep. All that extremely healthy stuff. My dad calls it his "sweet tooth" and we laugh at him when he says it, but in reality we ALL have a major sweet tooth. So there you are dad, vindication. :)

My mom is one to buy an assortment of baked goods for breakfast whenever she knows a lot of people will be over and I admit that I love it. I'm way to cheap to buy premade muffins and danish at the store because gosh darn it I run a food blog and I ought to be able to make the same stuff at home. In reality, it's good that I'm that cheap because Paul would never eat the stuff and I'd gain 10 - 30 pounds just looking it sit there before eating the whole thing myself!

Cheese danish though, that's always the first thing to go. We all love our cheesecake and cheese danish wraps it in pastry, drizzles some icing over the whole thing, and calls it a day. I believe the first time I made this Cheese Danish Coffee Cake the entire thing was gone in minutes and was talked about. That's when you know you've found a good one. :)

Cheese Danish Coffee Cake
(called Williamsburg Bread) from Gooseberry Patch Almost Homemade

2 (8 oz) cans crescent rolls
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick spray and unroll one can of crescent rolls on the bottom, pressing perforations to seal. In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla extract until cream. Spread over crescent rolls in pan. Unroll remaining crescent roll dough over top (you can leave the perforations if you want, I pressed them out on a separate cookie sheet and then transferred it over top of the cream cheese filling). Stir together cinnamon and sugar for the topping. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Makes 8-10 servings.

Seriously, you will need to restrain yourself from this one. There will be no further warning. :)
