Need your help - what would you call this pastry?

Hello you all English speakers

I am from Estonia and hoping to get a bit of your help. I am trying to find a good English term for the following pastry:
It is a small (for one person) round "open-face" pastry made from yeast dough, filled with curd/cottage cheese or semolina mixture. The attached picture should give you a hint of what it looks like.

Thank you!!

Interesting. I thought Cheese Danish was made with cream cheese? It's what I get from a Chicago bakery. What I am learning is different parts of thecountry make the same name food in many different ways.

It's a cheese danish. The recipes I have are sometimes with cottage cheese or ricotta, sometimes cream cheese, sometimes combo.

It is a cheese danish. and a very nice looking one too I might add! They can be made with cottage cheese, cream cheese or even ricotta, usually in a pastry cream custard.

Sorry, June I posted before I saw yours. But at least we agree!

I think if the pastry is made with butter as the fat, and is a flaky pastry, then indeed, I aggree that it is a filled Danish pastry. If it is not very buttery, and is more cake-like, then I would call it a yeast-raised filled doughnut or a filled beignet. But whatever you want to call it, I agree that it looks wonderful.

In English -- and perhaps other languages as well -- just about anything that looks like that is called a Danish Pastry.

The particular type depends on the filling. Based on your description, I think this would be either a Cheese Danish or a Custard Danish.

Whatever it's called, it looks delicious!

What is it?

In my neck of the woods it might be called a Bavarian Cream pastry or a cheeese (cream) danish. It would depend upon the pastry and the contents. My filling recipes are very similar in flavor but not in texture. The good news is i can put either in puff pastry.

Decadent is really the only name.
