Cream Cheese Pecan Danish

1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 F. Roll puff pastry to a 15x10-inch rectangle. Place in a jellyroll pan.

Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg and vanilla with mixer on medium speed until combined. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Spread filling over the puff pastry to within 3 inches of the outside edges. Make 2 inch cuts at 1 inch intervals on the long sides of puff pastry. Crisscross the strips of pastry over the filling.

Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 25-30 minutes or until a nice puffy golden brown. Cool. Drizzle with glaze and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of chopped pecans.

Glaze: Beat together 3 oz softened cream cheese, 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 Tbs. milk until smooth and spreadable. Top cooled pastry.
