Cheese Danish Pie Crust Squares

My mom used to make cinnamon rolls with pie crust scraps, which gave me the idea for making these danishes. It is a great way to use leftover dough and enjoy the taste of a cheese danish without having to make a whole batch. These danishes are a wonderful treat to have with your coffee in the morning! I make them with my gluten free pie crust recipe (Bette Hagman’s Four Flour Pastry (Gluten Free Pie Crust)), so I do not know how they would taste on a regular wheat flour crust, but I'm sure they would still be tasty! I like to make half the batch with chocolate chips and the other half with raspberry jam (put this on top of the cream cheese mixture before baking). I had trouble naming this one, so I would love to hear ideas for a tasty and descriptive name!
