  • 1/2 Cup Frozen Cranberries
  • 1/2 Orange Zest
  • 3 Tsp. Orange Juice
  • 4oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar


  • 2 Puff Pastry Sheets lightly thawed
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 tsp. Water

For the glaze

  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Milk


  1. Beat all of the filing ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Set aside and start working on your puff pastry. (You will have a bit of filling left over, you can decide what to do with it or only make 2/3 of a batch if math is your thing.)
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Roll each puff pastry sheet into a 12 x 12 inch square. Cut each into 9 pieces. Prick with a fork several times in the center.
  4. Beat the egg white and water together and brush onto each puff pastry square.
  5. Pipe a scant amount of cranberry cream cheese filling onto each square.
  6. Bake at 400 F for 15-18 minutes or until puffy and lightly browned (follow baking time on your brand of puff pastry for best results). Cool on wire racks.
  7. Make the glaze by beating the powdered sugar with enough milk until smooth.
  8. Drizzle on cooled Danishes and dust with powdered sugar (optional) Best served the same day. Or store tightly covered for up to several days.
