Special thanks to Lucky Leaf for partnering with me on this post! Thank you for supporting the brands that I love to use! Easy, 30-minute (including bake time!), 5-ingredient cinnamon roll cherry danish. Growing up our family’s Christmas mornings always started with breakfast. (Breakfast that was more dessert, but still…) Since we were up at a ridiculously early hour each year, my mom’s go-to breakfast she’d make for us had to be quick. (Especially because everyone was anxious to get to the presents!) Every year that I can remember we had canned cinnamon and orange rolls with a homemade Orange Julius smoothie. We loved the cinnamon rolls and raved over the smoothie. And, I still love both of them to this day! While there is nothing quite like a hot, fresh-out-of-the-oven, homemade cinnamon roll, the canned ones aren’t too bad. Especially considering they require much less effort than the homemade ones… That said, you top a canned cinnamon roll with a cream cheese mixture and cherry pie filling, and I’d pick that over homemade cinnamon rolls any day! And that is just what these are — sugared cream cheese + cherry pie filling topped cinnamon rolls. These “cheater” quick cherry danishes are CRAZY good. And equally easy! I use Lucky Leaf Cherry fruit filling and topping for these danishes — spoon a tablespoon of the mixture over the cinnamon rolls and these are ready to be thrown into the oven. The cherry topping makes these danishes not only so pretty and festive for Christmas, but also completely changes the flavors and textures in all the best ways. FOLLOW ALONG!
