EASY CINNAMON APPLE CREAM CHEESE DANISH 

Do you need an excellent treat for breakfast or brunch?  You cannot get any easier than this apple cream cheese danish.  I layered a can of crescent roll dough on the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish.  Next, I added a mixture of cream cheese and sugar.  Apple Pie Filling is layered over the cream cheese layer. Lastly, another layer of crescent rolls topped with butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar is added.  This apple cream cheese danish recipe is not only easy to make but as delicious as a piece of apple pie for breakfast.

Fall Is In The Air With Apple Cream Cheese Danish

I love the smell of apples baking with all the spices penetrating throughout the house.  It makes the house smell so amazing. That is what you smell when you bake this fabulous apple recipe.  Your family will be coming to the kitchen without being told too.  They will want to see what is cooking in the oven.

I adapted this recipe from The 12 Days of Christmas Cookbook.   It is called Cheese Danish in this cookbook.  It is made with a cream cheese layer without the apples.  I added the apple to my recipes.

First Step: Crescent Rolls

Flatten a roll of Crescent Rolls at pat together in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are the base for apple danish.

Second Step: Layer of Cream Cheese

  • Cream together cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Spread over the dough
Layer on Cream Cheese filling on top of the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.

Third Step: Apple Pie Filling

Layer the can of apples over the cream cheese layer.

Apple pie filling is layered on top of the cream cheese.

Fourth Layer: Sugar Cinnamon Mixture Tops This Cream Cheese Danish

  • Melt the butter and drizzle over the top of everything.
  • Mix the brown sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Bake 350 degrees 40 to 45 minutes.
After adding another layer of Crescent Rolls on top of the apple pie layer, sprinkle with a cinnamon sugar mixture.

    • Debby,

      Thank you for stopping by and seeing the easy Apple Cream Cheese Danish. It is really easy to make and super delicious. Thank you for catching my mistake when writing the recipe. I corrected it.

      The 1/4 cup of sugar is combined with a teaspoon of cinnamon and tablespoon of brown sugar. This mixture goes on the top of the Cresent dough before baking.

    • Ginger,

      Thank you for letting me know you made my Cinnamon Apple Cream Cheese Danish. You made my day. I hope you enjoy it. It is almost too easy to let everyone know the recipe.
      HAVE A MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

        • Sherri,

          Thank you for stopping by Recipes For Our Daily Bread to see my Apple Cream Cheese. Yes, you could definitely use fresh apples. You would have to add some sugar and spices to the apples. I would try fresh apples that you prepare for an apple pie but you would not need near as much as for a pie.
          Have a wonderful week!
          Blessings,

    • Karen,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. I love this Apple Cream Cheese Danish. I have made it using different types of canned filling but I have never left out the cream cheese mixture.
      I would recommend if you just want to use apples, I would highly recommend my apple turnovers. It is simply apple filling and puff pastry.

  2. Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party! Your post has been pinned to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board 🙂

    I had no idea a danish recipe was this easy! Thanks for sharing

  3. This looks phenomenal! But I have a question. Where do I find fried applies. I have cans of apple pie filling but I have never seen canned fried apples.

    • Cynthia,

      I found them at Walmart, but I am pretty sure Apple Pie Filling is very close to the same thing. I have a post for fried apples, but I decided not to use it in this recipe. I am always in a hurry in the morning to make breakfast. Everyone is standing around in the kitchen waiting on me. I may try the homemade fried apples when I make breakfast for dinner.
      Thank you so very much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I hope you will following my blog.
