Lady Behind The Curtain - Cheese Filled Danish Rolls

“This is the BEST danish I have ever had!”  That’s what my husband said when he took his first bite of this delicious danish.  Using store bought crescent rolls, filled with a cheesecake filling and a dalip of jelly.  YES!  These are the best danish YOU will ever have!  I am so happy my mom gave me her Pillsbury Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook from 1996 because it is filled with awesome recipes that I can’t wait to try.    The winner for this recipe was: Barbara S. Gibson, she won the Grand Prize in 1975.

About Sheryl

I have been organizing BIG church events for over 25 years. From Thanksgiving dinners, Vacation Bible School, Fall Festivals, Easter Brunch and Rodeo Fest. I think I’ve done it all and loved every minute of it. So I decided to bring some of that experience to Lady Behind The Curtain. Of course writing a blog is way different then orangaizing an event. I have learned so much about recipe development, food staging and photography. All creative outlets.
