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!
