Next, apply a layer of cherry pie filling (or any kind of filling you prefer). This is the point where you can choose to make these with apple pie filling, blueberry pie filling, peach pie filling, etc. We love the cherry filling best.

If you want a plain cheese danish, omit the pie filling completely.

Unroll the remaining crescent rolls and place them together on a cutting board or other smooth surface and gently press them to remove the seams. Place this on top of the cherry filling.

Bake for about half an hour, remove from oven and let the danish cool completely. While it’s cooling combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until smooth, drizzle over the cooked danish bars.

This recipe can be doubled by doubling the ingredients and using a 9″x13″ baking dish instead of a 9″x9′.  If you don’t have access to refrigerated crescent roll dough, you can easily make your own. Our crescent roll dough recipe is at the bottom of our crescent roll Italian hero recipe.
