Almond Streusel Cherry Cream Cheese Danish Recipe


  • Streusel:
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 2TBSP flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP butter
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • Danish:
  • 3oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 can Pillsbury Grand Biscuits
  • 3 TBSP butter, melted


Heat even to 350 degrees.

Make streusel:

Grate 1 TBSP butter and add in flour…cinnamon and almonds. Mix until all incorporated and set aside.


With mixer, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

In separate bowl mix almond flavoring with cherries.


Separate biscuits and flatten each into a 5 inch circle.

In the center of each one, spoon about 5 cherries and 2 tsp cream cheese mixture.

Bring the sides of dough up and over filling…pressing the seam together as you go. Then twist the top in a circular motion to seal…making a little round fruit filled package!

Dip top of each biscuit in melted butter and dip in streusel.

Place on baking sheet a couple of inches apart and bake 18-22 minutes. Remove to cooling rack.
