Apple Cinnamon Danish

I have been incredibly busy this past week with work and I am also trying to recover from a really bad cold the kid's passed on to me. I feel absolutely horrible and pretty much have just been trying to get healthy the past few days. I felt well enough yesterday to bake up a sweet treat for my family and make them dinner.

I always keep Pillsbury Crescent Rolls in the fridge. My kids love to eat them. Today I will be sharing an easy Danish recipe that I originally found on TfDiaries four years ago. It doesn't take too long to whip up. The original recipe that I found was made with raspberries. I have made a bunch of different batches over the years like strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, mixed berries but my all time favorite one is apple cinnamon. Here is the recipe to my Apple Cinnamon Danish. It is sweet, packed with cinnamon, and really delicious.

Ingredients:

1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Roll 
1 tube cream cheese, room temperature  
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 apples, chopped 
Cinnamon Sugar seasoning
2 teaspoons sugar 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In frying pan cook chopped apples in 1 teaspoon butter and 2 teaspoons sugar on medium heat until tender. Feel free to add more cinnamon and sugar if you like your apples extra sweet.

2. While apples cook unroll crescent roll. Cut one inch strips along the sides of the dough. 

3. Whip together cream cheese, one teaspoon butter, vanilla extract, and sugar until smooth. Spread filling down the center of the dough. Spoon apples on top of the cream cheese filling and braid the dough together (it might rip a bit and look ugly but that's okay). 

4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until dough is a nice golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm. 


Enjoy! This Apple Cinnamon Danish is delicious. I like to enjoy it with a cup of coffee. It's perfect for an easy breakfast, brunch, or afternoon tea with your girls. 

Thanks for stopping bye. Enjoy your day!
