Apple Cream Cheese Danish

Apple Cream Cheese Danish

Warning!  These little delectable delights are addicting.  Buttery and soft with cream cheese fillings topped with apple pie filling and glazed with vanilla icing. Oh my goodness. Need I say more?

Apple Cream Cheese Danish

1 (8 oz) package of Cream Cheese 
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cans Pillsbury crescent roll sheets (no seams)
1 can apple pie filling 

In a small bowl, blend cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice.  Open can of pie filling and cut apples into very small chunks. Return pieces back to can and mix in using a spoon.

Lay out crescent dough and cut into 4 rectangles.  If you have the rolls with seams, flatten it out into a seamless rectangle, seal the perforations and then cut your 4 rectangles.

Spread each rectangle with about 3 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture.

Starting at long side, gently roll and twist at the same time until the roll is about 10 inches long. Pinch edges to seal. Holding one end, loosely coil each.

With your fingers spread the dough out just enough to make room for the filling. Make a small well in center of each one. You want to fill with about a tablespoon or so of pie filling so if necessary use your thumb to stretch the center. 

Lay each danish on a parchment lined baking sheet. Fill each center with about 1-2 tablespoons or more of apple pie filling. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 to 18 minutes  or until golden brown.


1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 teaspoons milk

For the glaze, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over each warm danish. These taste best when served warm.

Note:  Use any pie filling or preserves you like. I make these with peach, strawberry and blueberry and they are all incredibly good!
