Chocolate and Cream Cheese Danish Recipe




A trip to the bakery can be an expensive outing. Are you having friends over or need to bring something to a party? Chocolate and cream cheese danish pastries can easily cost $3.25 each. A box of these 8 danish will cost you $26. Making the same pastries at home will cost you less than $8. And best of all they are quick to prepare and fairly easy. Sugar, vanilla, and eggs are staples most home bakers already have on hand. You might only need to run out for a few items. The puff pastry typically costs $4. I never seem to find puff pastry on sale in my area. I found the cream cheese on sale for $1.99. The great thing about cream cheese is the shelf life. You can buy it in advance when it is on sale. The chocolate chips were on sale for $2 and you will only need half of the bag.
