Quick and Easy Apple Cream Cheese Danish -- A Pinch of Joy

Cream Cheese sharpened with lemon juice, topped with cinnamony apples on a barely there crust — out of this world goodness! This is a perfect make ahead dish for a group brunch. And sooo good hot out of the oven for a spur of the moment snack or dessert. It is so quick and easy to make, which makes it even better.

I used no sugar added apple pie filling. One can is okay, but two cans are better, especially if you are using this as a brunch or breakfast dish. Prettier and more filling. Cool the danish overnight or refrigerate after baking. This allows the cream cheese filling to set up and the flavors to meld. It will cut easier and look very nice on the serving plate.

On the other hand, right out of the oven — well not right out of the oven literally. Wait 10-15 minutes before diving in so you don’t burn anything! Eating it hot is a treat — on the messy side but delicious. Makes a quick dessert for an evening meal or even a Sunday afternoon snack. Or when you don’t have time to plan ahead — like most of the time around here.

Hot Apple Cream Cheese Danish -- A Pinch of Joy Be sure to use a pan with sides at least an inch high. Or you will be adding the smell of burnt butter to your house, just as I did to make our Thanksgiving guests oh so welcome! I had to improvise because the jelly roll pan was missing. Next time — shuddering at the mere thought of moving again — not in the plans!!!! — but if I ever need to improvise again, I will make an aluminum foil pan and dam on top of the cookie sheet.
