Elderberry Honey Cream Cheese Danish

Elderberry Honey Cream Cheese Danish

There's nothing like a fresh pastry in the morning to start the day off right. Make it easy with this recipe featuring Firebee Elderberry Honey instead of sugar! It's as delicious as it is beautiful.


Yields 6 servings
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. raspberries
  • 2 Tbsp. Firebee Elderberry Honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg - beaten with a pinch of salt
  • powdered sugar 


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easier cleanup.

Step 2

In a bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. Firebee Elderberry Honey, vanilla extract, and 2 Tbsp. of beaten egg until smooth. 

Step 3

Unfold the puff pastry sheet in the prepared baking sheet and place the cream cheese mixture in the middle third vertically, leaving about 1 inch space at both ends. Arrange raspberries over the cheesecake filling.

Step 4

Using a knife or scissors, cut one-inch strips on the unfilled parts of the dough, making sure that both sides have a matching number of strips. Alternating sides, (left, right; left, right) make a braid. Press the first two strips and the last two strips firmly into the unfilled dough underneath, sealing the filling.

Step 5

Using a pastry brush, brush the beaten egg over the braid. Bake for 20 minutes at 400F, or until the puff pastry is dark golden. Halfway through baking, rotate the baking sheet for even baking. 

Step 6

Remove from the oven to a cooling rack, to cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar right before serving. Enjoy!
