Recipe Box, Maple Bacon Apple Danish


The Jammin’ Cheese Danishes were such a hit I decided to try another version

with baked apples and maple icing, and maple bacon garnish





So easy to make with canned crescent roll dough and Stouffer’s baked apples





The maple icing is super simple to make also

and the bacon on top makes them extra irresistible!






These are perfect for fall brunches and weekend breakfast treats





It’s hard not to eat the icing by the spoonful!





Leave the raw dough roll in tact and slice it into 8-10 rounds





Heat the butter and maple syrup in a small sauce pan

When the butter has melted stir in the sugar and set aside to cool





Place dough rounds on parchment lined baking sheet

Use your fingers to form them into bowls





Stir cream cheese with sugar and vanilla





Spoon cream cheese filling into bowls, pushing down into dough

Top with heaping spoon of apples





Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until dough is cooked through and golden





Let cool a bit before drizzling with maple icing





Garnish with bacon crumbles and enjoy!
