Servings: 8 danish
- 12 ounces Pillsbury Grands Crescent Roll Dough
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsps water
- 3 apples Macintosh
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup water

You will want to first, peel your apples to remove the skin.
Then, core them using an apple corer.
Dice them into small pieces, and set them aside.
In a small stockpot, add your butter.
Add in apples, and spices.
Pan-fry for 2 minutes and then add in your flour and water to thicken.
Stir until the apples get tender, and thicken (about 2 minutes).
Set aside to add to your danish.
To make danish from crescent rolls, preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Unwrap your crescent roll dough and keep it in log form.
Slice 8 equal discs from the dough.
Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Press gently to create an indent in each for the apple pie filling.
Add a hearty tablespoon of filling to each crescent.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
Once done, remove from the oven and allow them to cool before icing.
Measure 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar and add it to a medium-sized bowl.
Add in 1 1/2 tablespoons of water or milk.
Stir until creamy. If it is too thin, simply add in a tablespoon more of sugar until desired thickness is reached.
Add icing to a pastry bag and snip the tip off the bag.
Drizzle icing onto each apple danish.
This icing will harden on your pastry and takes about 1 full hour to do so.
