King’s Hawaiian Cheesecake Danish


1 package King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (12 count)

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup butter, melted

2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar (1 1/2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon)

Powdered sugar for dusting

Prepare for Baking: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.


Prep the Sweet Rolls: Gently slice each King’s Hawaiian Sweet Roll in half, creating a pocket but not cutting all the way through.

Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a medium bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and egg yolk until smooth and well blended.

Fill the Rolls: Spoon or pipe the creamy cheesecake mixture into the pocket of each sweet roll, ensuring an even distribution.

Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the filled rolls on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they are spaced apart.

Top with Flavor: Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter, then sprinkle generously with the cinnamon sugar mixture for a delightful burst of flavor.

Bake to Perfection: Slide the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the rolls turn a golden brown hue and the filling is set.

Serve and Enjoy: Allow the danishes to cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring them to a serving platter. Dust with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.

Savor the Moment: Delight in these King’s Hawaiian Cheesecake Danishes warm, whether as a luxurious breakfast indulgence or a heavenly dessert that tantalizes your taste buds.
