Last week I was looking through my recipe box for something simple I could make for the girls to go along with their cereal for breakfast. I make muffins often, so wanted something a bit different.
This recipe had been in my recipe box for quite awhile, but I had never tried it. It was originally for a cherry danish, but I was able to get apple pie filling for a great price, so tried that instead. You should be able to find the crescent rounds (by Pillsbury) right by the crescent rolls in the refrigerated section. If not, you could use a tube of breadsticks, separating them into sections but leaving them coiled, then placing on the baking sheet.
These were definitely a winner; my girls loved them! This recipe only makes eight danishes, but could easily be doubled to make more. You could certainly try different fillings for variety. I baked them on my pizza stone which kept them nice and soft.
One tube Place & Bake Crescent Rounds
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup apple pie filling
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 tsp milk
Separate crescent rounds (leaving them coiled) and place two inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush generously with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Make an indentation in the top of each; fill with about 1 tbsp of pie filling. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Combine confectioners sugar and milk; drizzle over warm rolls.
