Cheaters Apple Danish:

This recipe is from The Country Cook's Blog.

For the Danishes:
2 tubes Crescent Rolls
1 can Apple Pie Filling
2 tbsp. butter, melted
Cinnamon Sugar

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3-4 tsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)

Separate dough into eight rectangles (only 4 are pictured). Seal perforations.

Using a brush or spoon, spread melted butter all over crescent rolls. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture (2 tbsp. white sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon)

(I reuse this little bottle. I add my cinnamon & sugar, shake it up and voila. I always have cinnamon sugar on hand and it sprinkles nicely on my dough.)

Roll up from long side; pinch edges to seal. Holding one end, loosely coil each.

Coil them up like snakes.

Now you want to get in there with your fingers and spread out the dough some to make room for the filling. Just pull and stretch and make a nice dent in the middle.

Open can of apple pie filling and using a knife, cut apple slices into smaller chunks. Just keep poking and slicing around until all your apples are cut into more manageable pieces.

Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Top each coil with about 2-3 tablespoons of apple pie filling.

Sprinkle the tops with a bit more cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake at 350(F) for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the glaze, in a bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over each warm danish. Makes 8 danishe
