  1. Could you add a can of raspberry pie filling, also?

    1. Definitely worth a try - nothing better than cream cheese Danish with raspberry.

  2. Could you add a can of raspberry pie filling, also?

  3. Now I see it is a measuring cup with the milk or sugar in it. When it is on Facebook it looks like an egg.

  4. Cut into thick slices? I cut roll into 6 slices. (I only did half recipe) I made healthier used 2 oz light cream cheese, 1/4 cup whipped Greek cream cheese spread & Greek yogurt,and cut white sugar in half(I use natural turbinado sugar). Skipped glaze...don't like too sweet. Looked pretty good (pushed filling up when they puffed) and tasted great. Will make again.

  5. YOu say "cut into thick slices" - exactly how many slices did you get out of this recipe? Thanks.

  6. Is that 1/4 cup total for Greek cream cheese spread & greek yougurt or 1/4 c each? Vanilla yogurt? As a Diabetic I would also use Splenda & Splenda Brown Sugar.

  7. Oh yeah...gotta make a store run in the morning. Definitely trying this!

  8. I am a vegan and this looks like a good candidate to make vegan since the crescents are already vegan. Vegan cream cheese tastes like the real thing and since there are no eggs involved: voila! Thank you!

  9. I have made these and blended raspberry/jalpeno jelly that I make with the cream cheese and add no sugar or glaze. The jelly was sweet enough and they were really good (in our opinion). :-)

  10. Please fix your recipe so it will print. Thank you!

    1. Agreed! The ingredients are not in order of use. The instructions are not well written either. BUT they do look good and I'm making them now.

  11. I don't understand how to create it hollow to pan? How do you cut? Help.

  12. Video would do the trick for this recipe to make the instructions more clear.

  13. Instructions could definitely be made more clear.

  14. Don't understand how to make the dough. Saw one person who cut the dough into 6 pieces. Do you just push in the centers of these pieces to make the recipe?

  15. Also lost about cutting dough,don't understand?
