Williamsburg Bread (i.e. Cheese Danish) Recipe

If you stocked up on cheap (or free) cream cheese & crescent rolls at Kroger over the last couple of weeks and need ideas for using them up, here is an awesome recipe for you to try.

A former co worker of mine made this recipe and she called it Williamsburg Bread. I have seen similar recipes in some of my cookbooks and it was called Cheese Danish. Whatever you call it, it is a keeper! I especially like it once it has been chilled in the fridge. You can serve this alone, or garnished with fresh strawberries. YUM!

This would be great for brunch or honestly just as a dessert.
