For the longest time I’ve been in love with the flavor combination of lemon and raspberry. I mean, I’ve got this amazing frozen pie, this gorgeous pound cake, these tasty little puffs and now these delicious cream cheese filled danish rolls!

The filling on these Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish Rolls is so simple, yet so flavorful!

The filling starts out simply, with just some cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whip that together until it’s smooth and creamy and then fold in some fresh raspberries.

You’ll want to use a tube of the Pillsbury crescent roll dough sheets. It’s the same dough as the regular crescents, only this dough doesn’t have the pre-cut lines. If you can’t find that, then just use the regular crescent rolls and pinch the seams together.

Spread the cream cheese filling over the dough and then roll it up to form a long tube. Cut the dough into 12 even discs.

Then you’ll just arrange the discs in a circle on a parchment lined baking sheet.

I’m not kidding when I say that my kids HOVER whenever I make these. They destroy these danishes so quickly that I’ve resorted to doubling the recipe every time.

Once they’re baked to a nice golden brown, drizzle on a super easy sweet icing and you’re all set!

These little danishes are so cute for a brunch or baby shower. Or just a fun and tasty way to brighten up your morning!

I can't wait to make these Lemon Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish Rolls for breakfast again!

The combination of sweet lemon raspberry with the cream cheese and flakey crescent roll… it’s a party in your mouth!

Here are some more fun ways to mix it up:

  • Skip the raspberries if that’s just not your thing
  • Try adding fresh black berries, blueberries or strawberries instead
  • Swirl in seedless raspberry jam if you don’t like those seeds
  • Add a pinch of lemon zest to the icing for more lemon flavor

    Blogs normally get groans & eye rolls out of me, but I actually really enjoyed & found yours helpful! For instance, in this recipe, you’ve struck a great balance between “convenience” ingredients (ready-made Pillsbury rolls) and the ones tht are what really elevate the recipe to the special, homemade “just for you, & better than bought” kind of thing tht ALL homecooks look to recreate every time they make something. I also appreciate the quick lil tips and suggestions on ways one can slightly tweak the recipe to better fit their personal taste- they have an open-mindedness to them tht helps inspire greater confidence in one’s own “cooking creativity,” if you will.

    anyway, EXCELLENT JOB, my friend. Keep it up! <3
