How to Make Apple Cheese Danish
- 1In a small bowl, thoroughly whisk together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and a very tiny pinch of cinnamon. Sometimes I leave out the cinnamon, as I'm not a huge fan of it, but a tiny pinch works ok. More for your taste, if desired. Set mixture aside.
- 2Peel, core and slice the apples. Dice them finely with a knife, or use a food chopper. Set aside.
- 3Place the refrigerator biscuits on a cookie sheet or a stone. I use the "grands" w/ butter infused into them, but a 10-pack of reg'lar ol' biscuits will do, too.
With a small rolling pin, or with the palm of your hand, flatten the biscuits on the cookie sheet.
- 4Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the flattened biscuits.
- 5Top the cream cheese with the diced apple.
- 6Sprinkle the pecans over the diced apple. (Most times, I don't have pecans on-hand, so I leave out this ingred...believe me, they're just as good!)
- 7With a small spoon, drizzle the caramel topping over the apple topping.
- 8Bake at 375° for 15 - 19 minutes. The 'grands' take closer to 19; the smaller biscuits are right at 15 minutes.
- 9Remove to a cooling rack, allow to cool for just a minute, and eat warm and gooey!
