Baked Apple Danish

Certainly! Here’s a delicious Baked Apple Danish recipe:


For the Pastry:

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (for rolling out the dough)

For the Apple Filling:

  • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Glaze:

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


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the diced apples, granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Toss them together to coat the apples evenly. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it’s smooth. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the thawed puff pastry into a rectangle.
  5. Cut the pastry into smaller rectangles or squares, depending on your preference for the size of your danishes.
  6. Place a spoonful of the cream cheese filling in the center of each pastry square.
  7. Top the cream cheese with a spoonful of the apple filling.
  8. Fold the pastry over the filling, creating a triangle or rectangle shape. Press the edges to seal.
  9. Place the apple danishes on the prepared baking sheet.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown and puffed up.
  11. While the danishes are baking, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until you reach your desired glaze consistency.
  12. Once the danishes are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly.
  13. Drizzle the glaze over the warm danishes.
  14. Serve your homemade Baked Apple Danish and enjoy!

These apple danishes are a delightful treat with a perfect balance of sweet apple filling and creamy cheese, all wrapped in a flaky puff pastry.
