Puff Pastry Apple Cream Cheese Danish



brown sugar



cream cheese



puff pastry

Peel, core, and dice the apples into 1cm pieces.

Combine with the sugar, spices, and cornstarch until the apples are soft and juices thicken. Set aside to cool.

Combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until very smooth.

Lightly roll out a sheet of puff pastry and cut the sheet into 9-10 strips. Repeat with the second sheet.

Take one strip and turn it opposite ways to make it into a corkscrew.

Repeat with a third strip of pastry.

Once the coil is complete (with three pieces of pastry), tuck the last tail under the pastry rose.

Press down all over the center of the pastry to create a sealed 2" well for the fillings.

Whisk the egg together with a splash of water and brush all over the pastry roses (including the centers).

Add the cream cheese mixture to the center of each well.

Gently add the apples to the top of the cream cheese, trying not to allow the juices to fall down the sides.

Add a dusting of powder sugar, vanilla icing, or caramel sauce, if desired!
