Strawberry Peach Danish

Over the weekend I made my first summery dessert this year. Peaches. Strawberries. Check and check! 

I meshed this Rustic Strawberry Peach Tart and this Apple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Danish to make one EASY and summery dessert. 

2 peaches, peeled and pitted
2 cups of sliced strawberries
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tube crescent rolls
1 pkg cream cheese (room temp)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp flour

for the glaze-
1 cup powdered sugar
4+ tbsp heavy cream
splash of vanilla

Preheat oven the 375 degrees.

Take your thinly sliced strawberries and peaches and combine with 2 tbsp of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla until coated. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside. 

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, flour and 1 tsp of vanilla and set aside. 

Open the crescents and unroll, leaving them attached as a big rectangle on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure there are no holes in the dough. Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough with a pizza cutter. Spread the cream cheese mixture down the center of the dough, avoiding your strips. Top with the fruit mixture. 

Fold the 1/2 inch dough pieces up over the filling, alternating sides to form a braided pattern. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until the filling is set and the crescents are golden. Let cool for about 20 minutes. 

While the danish is cooling, combine the powdered sugar, heavy cream and a splash of vanilla. Add more cream if needed to get your desired consistency. Pipe over the cooled danish a serve!

I honestly intended on taking my own pictures but seriously...this dessert went so fast, and I doubled it! This is 100% a crowd pleaser!
