Cheater Blueberry Danish

I really enjoy making brunch for my husband and family on weekend days when we aren’t rushing off to a hike or to church. But  we’re all big fans of sleeping in, so I am always on the lookout for dishes that don’t require me to get up early to prepare. Because if Hubby and kids are sleeping in, I better get to sleep in too :-).

This recipe is super quick and easy (I can get it fully assembled by the time the oven heats up), uses just four ingredients (yay!), and is positively delicious. It’s been a big hit with the whole family. I slimmed the original recipe down by substituting lighter ingredients, but even this lighter version tastes fattening. We have tried it with both regular sugar and Splenda, and no one could tell the difference. Serve it with fresh fruit for a full breakfast.

I just love recipes that call for only a handful of ingredients. I’ve tried this dish sugar and with Splenda sweetener, and we could not tell the difference.

Cheater Blueberry Danishes

Combine Neufchatel and sugar. I use a hand mixer, but whisk or fork will work.
