Blueberry-Cheese Danish Recipe at
In a blender or food processor, cover and process cottage cheese until smooth. Add sugar, milk, oil and vanilla; process until smooth.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to cheese mixture. Process just until dough forms a ball (dough will be sticky). Turn onto a floured surface; knead 4-5 times. Place in a bowl; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add egg yolk, lemon peel and vanilla; mix well. Turn dough onto a 17-in. x 13-in. piece of parchment paper. Roll into a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Transfer with paper to a baking sheet.

Spread cream cheese mixture lengthwise in a 3-1/2-in.-wide strip down center of dough; sprinkle with blueberries. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips about 3-3/4 in. into center. Fold alternating strips at an angle across berries. Pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Beat egg white and water; brush over dough.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm pastry. Refrigerate leftovers.

very good
This recipe was the first danish I've made. It turned out great! Next time I will use half water, half lemon for the frosting drizzle. It was just slightly too lemony for me.
