Lemon Blueberry Danish

  • 1 Can Refrigerated Thin Pizza dough or 1 Can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls seamless variety
  • ½ Cup Lemon Curd
  • ½ Cup Blueberry Jam
  • 1 egg optional

Easy Lemon Glaze

  • Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice


For lemon blueberry danish:

  • Preheat oven to 375. Roll out dough onto a piece of parchment paper atop a baking sheet. Using kitchen scissors make 2 inch long cuts (about 1 inch apart) along each side of the dough. Spread the lemon curd over the center of the dough, making sure to leave a little room at the bottom to fold over the dough to hold the filling in place. Next, spread the blueberry jam on top of the lemon curd. Starting from the top fold over each each dough strip over the filling, alternating from each side. Fold the bottom and top ends to seal in the filling. (Optional step: beat 1 egg in small bowl. Brush the top of the pastry with egg wash before baking) Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Top with lemon glaze.

Easy lemon glaze:

  • In small bowl mix powdered sugar, milk, and lemon juice. Combine until the consistency is a thin paste.
