- King’s Hawaiian rolls. Or similar sweet rolls. This brand works too.

Hawaiian Cream Cheese Danish Frequently Asked Questions
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 cooking eggs to 145°F and to maintain that temperature for 15 seconds to consider them safe to eat.
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.
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.

- 1 12-pack KING'S HAWAIIAN® original sweet rolls
- ⅓ cup butter melted
- 1 tablespoon butter melted
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg omit or reduce if you're not a fan
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 1 large egg beaten
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 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 together the ⅓ cup butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a measuring cup. Pour evenly over the rolls.
- Stir the room temperature cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the sugar until smooth. Next, stir in the beaten egg until incorporated.
- 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.
- 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 and runny right out of the oven.
Hi. Quick question – Are the rolls ‘regular’ or ‘slider’ size? I ask since you reference slider rolls in your blog content, but not in the recipe, so I just want to be sure. Looking forward to trying this recipe – thanks.
They were technically rolls, not sliders because they weren’t sliced for sandwiches.
These sound amazing, but how are you determining the nutritional information? The package of Kings Hawaiian Rolls says one roll alone is 16g carbs and 90 calories.
The recipe card calculates it automatically and unfortunately, it’s not always accurate. If it doesn’t have d Hawaiian roll in the database it will calculate on a regular yeast roll (which doesn’t have as much butter).
These are delicious! My cream cheese mixture seemed a bit runny at first but firmed up and everyone loves them.
Thank you!! I LOVE them too!! I’m so happy you like them. Yes, the cream cheese has to cool a little before it thickens.
These look amazing. I’d love to take these to work. Could you get them ready then just bake them in the morning?
Yes, that’s a great idea!
These were delicious! I make a Cooking Light holiday cranberry citrus bread with frozen rolls but it’s a lot of work. I think I will try with a Kings Hawaiian as a hack after making these since it has similar ingredients. .
Delicious! They tasted made from scratch. Our company flipped for these yummy danish! I can’t wait to make them again.
