Can I use fresh cherries instead of cherry pie filling?

Fresh cherries can be used as a topping, but you may need to cook them with a bit of sugar and cornstarch to create a thickened cherry filling before using them on the danishes.

How long do these danishes stay fresh?

These danishes are best when enjoyed on the day they are made. However, you can store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two.

  • For the Mini Cherry Cheese Danishes:
  • 1 sheet 1 puff pastry (thawed according to package instructions)

  • 4 ounces 4 cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon 1 pure vanilla extract

  • 1 1 egg yolk

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 cherry pie filling (homemade or store-bought)

  • For the Glaze (optional):
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 powdered sugar

  • 1 1 -2 tablespoons milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • Roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface to prevent sticking. Cut it into 12 equal squares.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, pure vanilla extract, and egg yolk. Stir until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Place a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese filling in the center of each puff pastry square.
  • Gently fold the corners of each square over the filling, forming a pinwheel or square shape. Press the edges to seal.
  • Arrange the mini danishes on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each one.
  • Using a teaspoon, create a small well in the center of each danish and fill it with a teaspoon of cherry pie filling.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the danishes are puffed and golden brown.
  • While the danishes are baking, prepare the optional glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk (start with 1 tablespoon and add more if needed), and pure vanilla extract until you achieve a smooth, pourable consistency.
  • Remove the danishes from the oven and let them cool slightly on a wire rack.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the warm danishes or use a spoon to spread it on top.
  • Serve the Mini Cherry Cheese Danishes warm or at room temperature.
