Did you know it’s easy to create a fancy Danish for breakfast that doesn’t take a ton of work? These came out really good, the only thing I would recommend is not using is the butter busting biscuits, but since I only had those on hand I used them anyway. The flaky ones would give you more of a Danish pastry feel to them. Overall super easy to make with a limited amount of time or surprise guest.

16.3-oz tube Pillsbury Grands!® Original Southern Style Biscuits
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup powdered sugar, divided
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup apple pie filling
1 teaspoon milk


Move oven rack to middle position and preheat to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment or silicone baking mat; set aside.

In a small bowl, add cream cheese, 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, and vanilla. Use a rubber spatula to mix until combined and no lumps remain.

Remove biscuits from tube and space out evenly on prepared cookie sheet. Use bottom of a can to press into each biscuit.

Press until flattened and a shallow depression is formed for the filling. (I just used the can that the apple pie filling came in.)

To make glaze add remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and milk to a small bowl. Mix until smooth, adding more milk or sugar to reach desired consistency. Use a fork or spoon to drizzle glaze over biscuits. Serve immediately.
