So this danish was so easy to make & the taste was unbelievably good. One of the great things about making danishes

is you can make a variety of different types by simply changing the fruit you use.

My husband loved this, saying it tasted like a poptart & has requested we try raspberry next.

Ingredients

1 box puff pastry {2 sheets}, thawed to room temperature

Filling

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
1-1/2 cups frozen blueberries (I used a little more than this)

Frosting

1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. Heavy Cream
1 tsp Lemon Extract
pinch of salt
chopped almonds (optional)

Lay one whole pastry sheet onto a greased cookie sheet.
Mix softened cream cheese, sugar, and almond extract together until well blended.  
Spread on top of  the pastry sheet then top with frozen blueberries.
Cut second puff pastry sheet into 10 long strips. If you cut your strips skinner like I did you will have more than 10 & that’s fine.
  Weave strips on top of the blueberries. To weave lay strips length wise about a finger space apart, then come back width wise doing the over under method.
Bake at 375 F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Every oven is different so watch closely around the 20 minute mark not to burn your danish.
Mix powdered sugar, heavy cream, pinch of salt & lemon extract until smooth. If mixture if a little dry add just a small amount of heavy cream.
If you can still taste the powdered sugar, add 1 drop at a time stirring each time until it taste lemony.
Can pipe the frosting on for a fancy effect or use the fork method to drizzle the icing on.
If you are using the chopped almonds sprinkle the on top.
