My favorite childhood treat was a pastry – especially a cheese danish.

    Oh, I’m wishing this were my breakfast today! I loooved apple danish when I was a youngster. Although, I think I’d have to leave the cream cheese out. I can’t get into cheese danish!

      yes… I don’t think I could ever make this without other people around… because I WOULD eat it all. serious.

    THIS. This is another reason I love you. My all-time favorite treat as a kid was a cream cheese Danish OR an apple Danish, and you’ve combined them. (I wouldn’t touch cherry-filled anything as a kid.) Random. And awesome. <3

      thanks, Holly – and YES – it’s very easy! I totally remember those pies… I used to love the lemon one. ew! :)

    I used to love cheese danishes from mcdonalds…and you couldn’t pay me to eat that now! Gross!
    My fave now is probably a whole grain cookie—my oh my, how things change :)

    • spabettie says

      wow… those must have been a regional thing? all I remember were those apple pie things. which were also gross… :)

    Another mouth watering recipe! I love apple turnovers, and am planning to make some tonight (the cheating way though), so this speaks to my mouth!! As for favorite sweet? There are many, but I am not a fan of candy. I am a cookie/cake person for sure.

    • spabettie says

      thank you! yes, I love turnovers too… and totally not cheating! :) just… getting to finish and EAT them faster!! :)

    • spabettie says

      hee! glad I could help… one of these days I want to tackle making my own puff pastry… just to say I did… 😀

    thanks for a spectacular idea! I’m making this but using the organic cherry pie filling I canned over the summer. And, I’m taking it to a party so I won’t eat it all! ha ha!

      hi Jacki – good idea, whenever I make these I make sure to have people around to share it… or I could easily eat it all in a day! enjoy!
