KING’S HAWAIIAN CHEESECAKE DANISH
Wowzers!!! I knew these would be good because, well, butter, cream cheese, sugar, and King’s Hawaiian rolls. How could they not be good, right? They are better than I imagined!
Other reasons to love them are that they cook in 12 minutes, they’re incredibly easy to make, and they have just a handful of ingredients.

- King’s Hawaiian rolls. Or similar sweet rolls.
- Cream cheese.
- Brown sugar.
- Granulated white sugar.
Isn’t everything already cooked? How long do I need to cook them?
Since everything is already cooked except the egg in the cream cheese mixture, you just need to get it to 145°F for 15 seconds.
The Food and Drug Administration Food Code recommends to cook eggs to 145°F and to maintain that temperature for 15 seconds to consider them safe to eat.
What kind of bread is King’s Hawaiian?
Oddly, on King’s Hawaiian website they never say exactly what kind of bread the slider rolls are. I did find on another site stating they are a ‘spin on classic Portuguese sweet bread, which is often made with milk, sugar, yeast, flour, and pineapple juice.’
In my opinion, King’s Hawaiian is similar to brioche. It’s light and airy with a fine, tender texture. They taste buttery and slightly sweet.
How to fill the danish with cream cheese mixture?
It’s easier if you use a piping bag with a large tip on it to pipe the cream cheese into the rolls. If you don’t have a piping bag, you can up a zip-top bag and snip the end. You’ll need to work with it to get the cream cheese into the roll and not just on top. As well, you can spoon the cream cheese into the rolls. It may take a little working with the first time you do it. I found the piping bag and tip the easiest.

- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and spread it evenly in a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Place the rolls over the butter. Cut an X into the rolls about ⅔s down but not completely through the bottom of the rolls.
- Stir the room temperature cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the sugar until smooth. Next, stir in the beaten egg until incorporated.

- Bake the rolls, uncovered at 375°F for 12 to 15 minutes. Everything is already cooked except the egg and they just need to be at 145°F for 15 seconds. (You can test with an instant-read thermometer if you prefer.) Therefore, after 12 minutes it really depends on how crusty you want the rolls to get. I prefer soft and took the ones photographed out at 12 minutes.
- Allow the rolls to cool just a couple of minutes before serving. The cream cheese mixture is really hot right out of the oven.
