12.29.19 I only had one can of crescent dough so I halved the recipe and baked in a 6-1/2 x8-1/2 glass baking dish. Obviously the texture will not be like a danish you d buy at the bakery but it also doesn t taste like biscuit dough and the cheesy filling is spot on delicious! And so darn easy the perfect choice for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast. Replacing the cheesy filling with lemon curd also might be a nice variation. Thanks for sharing your recipe enjoyed it.
