I forgot to mention, when I make these danishes I don’t even put the frosting on top, because it’s sweet enough and saves me a point. I use spray butter before serving it☺️

Thank you soooo much for this recipe. It is now my favorite dessert, snack, or accompaniment to my eggs for breakfast. I’ve even made it with regular cream cheese but I then cut the filling ingredients in half (just adds one more pp). I also add a little cinnamon to the dough to give it more flavor. I think the sugar free black berry jam is amazing with this recipe. You’re my hero! I refer all the WW members on the app to che k out your recipes. I owe a lot of my weight loss success to your genius recipes. Keep up the great work.

Was delicious! Made my own fruit filling with strawberries, monkfruit & cornstarch. Also made my own icing with powdered monkfruit, fat free half and half, and almond extract. Also substituted the sour cream to non fat Greek yogurt. Saved myself 2 points in the WW plan. I think kneading the dough is important because it give it that texture like a danish. Thank you Pounddropper!
