The Starbucks Cheese Danish is a beloved pastry that has captivated the hearts and taste buds of coffee lovers worldwide. With its flaky puff pastry, creamy cheese filling, and just the right amount of sweetness, it's no wonder this treat has become a staple on the Starbucks menu.
But what if you could recreate this delightful pastry in your own kitchen? Well, with just five simple ingredients and a few easy steps, you can enjoy the same irresistible flavors of a Starbucks Cheese Danish right in your home.
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
  3. Unfold the puff pastry sheet and cut it into 8 rectangles.
  4. Pipe or spread the cream cheese filling onto the center of each rectangle.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Brush the edges of the pastry with the egg wash.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and puffed.
  7. Let cool slightly before serving.
  • For a sweeter danish, add an extra tablespoon of sugar to the cream cheese filling.
  • For a more savory danish, add a pinch of black pepper to the cream cheese filling.
  • To make a strawberry plum danish, top each danish with a dollop of strawberry jam or strawberry purée before serving.

Enjoy the Flaky Goodness and Creamy Delight

Whether you're a seasoned baker or just starting out, this recipe is easy to follow and sure to impress. So gather your ingredients, preheat your oven, and get ready to indulge in the sweet and creamy goodness of a homemade Starbucks Cheese Danish.
Additional Tips:
  • For a more authentic Starbucks experience, use a pastry brush to apply the egg wash.
  • If the cream cheese filling is too soft, place it in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes to firm up.
  • If the pastry is browning too quickly, cover it loosely with foil for the last few minutes of baking.
  • Let the pastries cool completely before storing them in an airtight container at room temperature.


Can I use other types of fruit fillings?

Absolutely! Feel free to get creative with your fillings. Raspberry, blueberry, or even apricot jam can work wonders.

How can I make my Danish extra crispy?

For an extra crispy texture, brush your pastries with a beaten egg before baking. This will give them a beautiful golden sheen.

Can I prepare the pastries in advance?

Yes, you can assemble the pastries a day ahead, refrigerate them, and bake them when you're ready to enjoy.

Can I freeze the baked pastries?

Yes, you can freeze them, but it's best to reheat them in the oven to maintain their crispiness.

What's the best way to reheat leftover Danish?

To bring back the fresh-out-of-the-oven feel, preheat your oven to 350°F and warm the pastries for a few minutes.

Can I use a different type of cheese for the filling?

Certainly! You can experiment with different cheeses like mascarpone or ricotta for unique flavors.
