Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 1 package Puff pastry defrosted
  • 3 Apples peeled and thinly-sliced
  • 1/4 cup-ish Sugar


  1. Start out by cooking your apple slices on low in a pot with a little bit of water. Cook for about 10 mins or until the apples are soft.

  2. Roll out the puff pastry into two large rectangles, about 14"x 10" (ish), and slice each rectangle into six smaller rectangles.

  3. One set of six rectangles will be your danish "bases" and one will be the "tops". Slice three small slits in six top pieces. Place the base pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  4. Place about 8 thin slices of cooked apple in the middle of each base piece of pastry, or as many as you can fit while still leaving a 1/4" space around the edges of the pastry.

  5. Sprinkle a bit of the sugar over the apples.

  6. Top each apple-covered base piece with a top piece of pastry and pinch all around the edges to hold the apples in.

  7. Sprinkle a bit more of the sugar over top of each assembled danish.

  8. Bake for 20 mins at 400 degrees. Enjoy!
