Apple cream cheese danishes

Apple cream cheese danishes

Ingredients :

2 cups flour
pinch of salt
2.5 sticks sliced cold butter
.5 cup ice water

Whisk flour and salt, add butter and coat with flour, add ice water to make a rough dough, shape into disk and chill for an hour in the fridge. After it has chilled, roll it out into a rectangle. fold into thirds like a letter, rotate 90 degrees, and fold again. i did it 6 or 7 times. wrap tightly and chill (I let it chill overnight and i attribute the successful puff to that)

4 oz cream cheese softened
.25 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 tbs half and half
apple pie filling
egg yolk
sprinkle of sugar

Instructions :
Mix cream cheese, sugar, half and half, and vanilla in a mixer till smooth.
get out the chilled rectangle and roll it out (make sure you are adding equal pressure to get a consistent thickness of dough) into a large rectangle. cut out smaller rectangles with a pizza cutter. put them on a parchment lined baking sheet. with a sharp knife, score a .25 inch border but do not cut all the way through the dough. pierce the middle of the rectangle to prevent bubbling. top each rectangle with a spoonful of cream cheese mix, and then a spoonful of apple pie filling. wash the border with egg and sprinkle sugar along the border, or make your 5 year old do it because they wont friggin leave you alone. bake in a PREHEATED 400 degree oven for 20 minutes and dont open the oven until atleast 14 min in. let cool on a wire rack and add powdered sugar. thanks for all the love guys! hope you like it!
