I found this recipe last week, and was super anxious to try it. Troy has training a few towns over and he is carpooling with a van full of guys with voracious appetites. They are the perfect guinea pigs for new recipes.
These danish should be filed under "looks super complicated, but are STUPIDLY easy". One of the best things about this recipe is that the only real sweetener is the filling you choose and maybe a sprinkling of raw sugar on top. Compare this to a sickeningly sweet pastry from the grocery store, and this almost can convince you it's healthy. Almost.
NOLA Mommy's Danish (adaptations by Sarah)

Evaporated cane juice (organic whole(er) sugar you can get at Costco)
1/2 cup cold butter
3 tblsp cream cheese
3/4 cup milk + 1 tblsp
1 cup of jam or preserves of your choice

These were delicious and sooooooooo easy!
