  • Roll up the dough from long side and pinch edges to seal. Spiral the rope around itself to form a loose circle/spiral. Place onto a cookie sheet lined with a baking paper, spacing danishes about 2 inch apart.
  • Press the centers with a finger to make a well for the filling and stretch the sides a bit if it is necessary.

  • Take the danish out of the oven and allow them to cool for 10-15 minutes before icing. Voila! Apple Pie danish without leaving the house or breaking a sweat.
