+1, but I think there might be some powdered sugar and vanilla mixed with it?

It usually has an egg yolk or two beaten into it, along with some sugar & flavoring (usually vanilla and/or lemon). You beat it till creamy, but don't whip in too much air.

Sometimes the cream filling in a Danish pastry is just a version of pastry cream.

This video shows a microwave version of the pastry cream. Skip to 8:50 on the video to see the how the cream filling is made or watch the entire video for a crash course in making Danish.

This is the filling we made one time for cheese Danish or maybe we made Kolaches. Are they different? Dx made the yeast dough and I made the filling. I think we put dollops of homemade raspberry jam on top of the cheese filling.

Just beat the filling with an electric mixer until combined
Filling

2 packages 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 c sugar
1 egg beaten
1 t. vanilla extract
1/8 t. salt

That's sounds like filling I make, I just use farmers cheese instead. Thank you.

I was always told it was "Bakers Cheese"? I have no idea what it is though.

Quick story.
Cheese danish is how I met my first wife.
I would go to the bakery she worked at each day during my morning break and order a cheese danish.
I would always find two danishes in the bag. My working buddy said she was making a move. I did not believe him at first. but found out he was right after all.

To this very day, I have not had a cheese danish as good as those were. She worked in Publix and it was in the very early 70's.
