Apple Cheese Danish

Terrie Hoelscher


Warm, delicious and not too sweet. You could substitute peaches or pineapple or just leave off the fruit altogether, if you like, to make plain Cheese Danish.

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!
