Easy-Peasy Cheesy Danish

I found this simple recipe on Pinterest. Here's the website with the recipe. Starting with the crescent roll packages from the grocery store makes this a very simple process, of course. And sometimes, simple + delicious = exactly what we need, yes?
Prepare your cream cheese topping first. I halved the recipe, using 1/2 package of very-soft cream cheese,  1/8 cup sugar, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Mix that well.
The pastry is even easier. Spread the rolls out into 4 rectangles, pressing the seams to form the rectangles. Spread some butter on each one, and sprinkle some brown sugar on each one. Roll them so they are long tubes, pinch the ends, and then roll them up. Place on a greased cookie sheet and then press each one into a disc, with a good depression in the center of each. This is all quick and easy to do. Then dollop the cream cheese mixture evenly into the four rolls you've made.
Bake at 350ยบ for 15 minutes. These are yummy! If you need more careful directions and photos, check out the website above.
The glaze on top is just confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and a little milk. Blend it to your desired consistency.
I think I may need to make the second package of these in the morning :)
