While groceries shopping sometime ago I found this Pillsbury Flaky Chocolate Twist and I bought two tube of it. I bake one but we don’t really like it as we find the twist rather dry. So I have to think of another way to finish up the other tube. Since Carlos love the apple Danish sold at Wegman, I thought maybe I can create something similar with it. So I came up with this simple Apple Danish which tasted really good. With a few simple ingredients you can have freshly baked Danish for breakfast with your family.
1 8 oz tube of Pillsbury Flaky Chocolate Twist
3 apples – any kind
4 tbsp of brown sugar
1 tbsp of butter
A handful of raisin or dried cranberries
Juice of one lemon
1 egg - beaten
1/2 cup of powder sugar
2 tbsp of lemon juice
1. Peel, core and slice the apples. In a medium pan, add in butter, apples, brown sugar, lemon juice and cranberries and cook until soft and juice thicken. Set aside to cool.
2. In the meantime open tube of chocolate twist, take out the rolls (pix 2) and make an indentation at middle of the roll (pix 3) and place it on the line baking pan.
3. Fill it up with the cooked apple (pix 4) brush the side of the Danish with some beaten egg and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Set it aside to cool.
4. Mix the powder sugar and lemon juice until well combined. Drizzle it on top of the Danish.
