Ready in 23 minutes only (baking included) by swirling cheesy strips into coils, baking, and serving them with double espresso you get eight easy and tasty low sugar bites and plenty to pack a few for work!

Puff pastry, store bought, ready to cut is the best to make this great breakfast. You simply roll out the pastry dough to prepare your meal. It is the simplest way to have Danish breakfast.

Of course, multi-layered pastry originates from Denmark. That is how they got the name. It tastes like croissant filled with dense, tasty custard, cheesecake alike and keeps rich filling with it’s flaky and buttery crust.

So, you may wonder, what does cannoli have to do with these Danishes. I used one of cannoli stuffing variations with typical ingredients to combine with Danish pastry. Mascarpone, orange zest, vanilla extract and semi-sweet chocolate chips make irresistible Italian cannoli filling.

Once you spread it over the pastry and roll the stripes, swirl them or not, bake and serve, you see it is such a wonderful fusion (again) so easily done and so tasty!

If you are not into coils, you may simply twist each strip several times and place on the prepared baking sheet. That way you get bread sticks shaped Cannoli Danishes.

Don’t worry if some of the filling gets out. It makes the taste even better!
