1 can Pillsbury crescent rolls
Flour for dusting

1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp milk

4 oz. cream cheese softened
1/3 cup sugar
Splash of vanilla
1 can cherry pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix powdered sugar and milk; set aside.  Open container of rolls, do not unroll them.  Use a sharp serrated knife to cut through the dough; make 10 slices.  Lay each slice on a parchment lined cooking sheet.  Use a measuring cup to flatten each roll and build a small wall around the edges.  (Can use a drop of flour to prevent sticking and press with fingertips too).  Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth; dollop a small amount of cream cheese mixture and a teaspoon of cherries onto each Danish.  Bake for 18-20 minutes; let cool and drizzle with glaze.
