Lynn demonstrates how to make a super easy mini cream cheese Danish that would be great to serve at a breakfast or brunch. Fruit preserves can be added to these, if you desire.
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare baking sheets by lining with parchment paper.
Open the puff pastry and lay flat. Roll into a cylinder. Repeat with the other piece of pastry. Cut into approximately 1/4 " slices and place on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Make an indention in the middle of the pastry. Se aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and sour cream. Add about a teaspoon of this cream cheese mixture to the middle of your pastry. If you want to use preserves, place a small amount before the cream cheese.
Bake 15-25 minutes.
While the Danish cool, make the glaze.
Whisk together the confectioner's sugar, milk and softened butter. Drizzle over the Danish.
