Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add in apples, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir and cook until tender, 10-15 minutes.

  3. While apples are cooking, in a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla. Set aside.

  4. Pop open crescent roll dough and unroll, leaving crescents in rectangles. On an ungreased baking sheet, lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise. The dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan. Press edges together to even out edges and seal any holes. Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough. Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide. Top with cooked apples.

  5. Fold 1/2 inch dough pieces up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern. You may have excess dough once you reach the end of the danish, so fold them in as best as you can.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until filling is set and the crescent dough is golden in color. Cool at least 20 minutes before removing from baking sheet.

  7. Once danish has cooled, remove to a serving platter. In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream to create icing. You may need to add more cream to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danish.

  8. Cut into pieces and serve.
