Nutella Swirl Danish Ring

It's oh so amazing what you can do with refrigerated crescent rolls, like this incredible Nutella danish!

I feel like I've made a few recipes with refrigerated crescents to make danishes and I haven't had much luck with them turning out. I didn't have high expectations going in and once again, low expectations for the win because I was blown away with how delicious this simple recipe was. It wasn't super hard to make and it turns out looking so pretty and fancy. And like you slaved over for so long. Definitely all wins in my book - easy to make, looks great, tastes even better!

What you need:
For the Danish:
  • 2 pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
For the Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. milk
  1. Separate the crescents into triangles and set aside 4 triangles for the top.
  2. On a round baking pan (I used a pizza pan with foil), place 12 triangles in a circle with the wide ends on the outside and points towards the center, leaving a circle in the center.
  3. Press the seams together with your fingers. You want this to be about a 14-inch circle.
  4. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg, and vanilla. Beat on low speed with a hand mixer until smooth.
  5. Spread onto dough within a 1/2-inch of the edges. Dollop with Nutella and swirl with a knife. 
  6. Cut the reserved 4 triangles into thirds and arrange evenly spaced on the top. Press down on the outer edges.
  7. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.
  8. While the danish ring cools, make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
  9. Drizzle glaze over the danish and serve!
