Apple Danishes are the perfect way to ring in the apple season! The flaky crust, apple pie filling, crumb topping, and simple glaze make them irresistible.

The first step is to prep the apple filling. It's so simple! Just butter, sugar, cinnamon, and apples cooked for about 8 minutes until the sugary sauce is thickened and the apples are tender. You'll then let it cool off while you prep the other parts of the danish.

Can you ever go wrong with crumb topping? I made these once without but since adding crumb topping I've never looked back. The topping is just 4 ingredients mixed together and sprinkled over the top. Totally worth washing the extra dish.


The base of the danish is the easiest part! The dough is puff pastry and using the frozen one that comes in a box works beautifully. Pull it out of the freezer and in 40 minutes you're ready to roll, cut, twist, and wrap it into pretty little roses. You'll then press the middle down to create a well for the apple filling. You'll then brush the dough with an egg wash so that the danish gets nice and golden. The last step is to sprinkle the tops with the crumb topping and then bake.

The glaze on top is totally optional but it's yummy and looks beautiful too. It's just 3 simple ingredients and your kids will love licking the bowl clean like mine did.

Apple Danishes are best warm but if you have self-control and don't scarf them down, they're delicious the next day too. Enjoy!

For the Apple Filling :
  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • ½ cup granualted sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples peeled and diced
For the Crumb Topping :
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons butter melted
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
For the Egg Wash :
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
For the Glaze :
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk
For the Apple Filling :
  1. In a medium sauce pan, combine butter, sugar, water, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together. Melt over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes, stirring frequently, and then add in apple. Bring back to a boil over medium-high heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and let cool.
For the Crumb Topping :
  1. Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter together and then mix in the flour until thick and crumbly. Set aside.
For Assembling :
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Unfold one thawed puff pastry sheet at a time and roll out to 10x10 inches. Use a pizza cutter and make 12 even strips. Connect two strips together by overlapping by a half inch and pressing together. Twist the ribbon and then snail it around itself and press the end to the rest of the dough. Place on a parchment lined pan (6 danishes per baking sheet) and press the middle down. Place a spoonful of apple filling in the wells.
  3. Mix the egg and water together in a small dish and brush the pastry with it. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the tops of each danish and then bake for 16-18 minutes until edges are golden. Let cool for 5 minutes and then glaze.
For the Glaze :
