These Apple Cheese Danish are a great way to show off seasonal produce! Homemade pastry dough filled with cream cheese and tart apples!
I have more apple recipes on my own site than any other kind of recipe. Like… there are more apple recipes than chicken recipes. That’s how much I like them.
I like apple recipes so much that I even add them to dinner! Chicken and Apple Cheddar Dumplings are - OMG THEY ARE SO GOOD. Also winning: Caramel Apple Pork Chops. That one is a 30 minute meal. You’ve gotta try it.
Apple Cheese Danish are NOT a 30 minute meal, guys. I’m sorry. Except not really.
This is a recipe meant for lazy Saturdays. I totally took my time and made these on the first day of school with the TV blasting because… NO CHILDREN. And then when they came home they thought I was some kind of extra fancy mom that makes homemade treats just for them!
Really it was more that I had no one here asking me for things and interrupting. AND I had a day off of work.
This is a yeasted dough but don’t be scared! It’s simple and doesn’t require much in the way of kneading. And it’s really easy to make ahead of time. If you don’t have a whole day sans children and work, you can put the dough together the night before, refrigerate, and then roll out / fill / bake in the morning.
You can make the apple filling ahead of time, too.
Perfect for weekend mornings on the porch with a cup of hot coffee and that new fall crisp in the air. Wear a sweater.
And wish that fall lasted more than a month.
