If you’re looking to make mini cherry cheese danishes at home, here are some tips to help you:



1. Dough: You can use store-bought puff pastry or make your own dough from scratch. If using puff pastry, make sure to thaw it properly according to the package instructions. If making your own dough, follow a reliable recipe and pay attention to the rising and resting times.


2. Filling: For the cheese filling, use a combination of cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract. You can also add a touch of lemon zest or almond extract for extra flavor. Combine the ingredients until smooth and creamy.


3. Cherry Filling: Use fresh or frozen cherries for the filling. If using frozen cherries, make sure to thaw and drain them before use. You can mix the cherries with a little sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice to create a thickened filling.


4. Assembly: Roll out the dough into a rectangle and cut it into smaller squares or rectangles for mini danishes. Place a spoonful of the cheese filling in the center of each square, leaving a border around the edges. Top the cheese filling with a spoonful of cherry filling.


5. Folding: To create the classic danish shape, fold the corners of the dough over the filling, forming a small package or envelope shape. Press the edges lightly to seal them.


6. Egg wash: Before baking, brush the tops of the danishes with an egg wash mixture (beaten egg with a splash of milk). This will give them a golden and glossy finish.


7. Baking: Preheat the oven to the temperature specified in your recipe. Bake the danishes on a lined baking sheet until they are puffed and golden brown. Follow the recommended baking time, but keep an eye on them to prevent overbaking.


8. Glaze: Once the danishes have cooled slightly, you can drizzle them with a simple glaze made from powdered sugar and a little milk or lemon juice. This adds sweetness and enhances the overall presentation.


Remember to let the danishes cool completely before serving to allow the filling to set. Enjoy your homemade mini cherry cheese danishes as a delightful treat!
