This is truly sinful and delicious. Simple ingredients and an easy recipe, what more could you ask for?

When I considered making these this way, it was only because I wanted a danish but did not have the proper ingredients.

I thought I would try this and Voila! These are totally amazing and super soft like you want them to be.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Do I have to use Hawaiian rolls?

Well, you do not need to, however, the cinnamon roll danish will not taste as sweet as they would be using the Hawaiian sweet rolls.

            Should the rolls be touching in the baking dish or have space between?

I leave just a small space between them so that I can get a touch of crisp on the outside of each roll.

            Can these rolls sit on the counter after baking them?

You could leave the rolls on the counter for a short time once you have served them. I prefer to keep them covered tightly and place them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

            Can I freeze the rolls?

I do not recommend freezing the rolls once they have baked. I personally do not like the texture of the Cream Cheese portion of the danish.
