  • 1/3 of the Basic Sweet Dough
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash salt
  • 4- 5 tablespoons milk
  1. Turn 1/3 of the classic sweet dough onto a lightly floured surface; Roll dough into an 16x9-in. rectangle; cut into 16 1” strips.
  2. Twist a strip forming into a circle tucking the end pieces underneath. Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strips. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Fill the center of each Danish with 1 tablespoon pie filling.
  4. Bake 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  5. Prepare the icing: in a medium bowl beat powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over Danish.
