Step-By-Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Add bacon to medium sauté pan and cook until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towel-lined plate and set aside.

Step 2

In large bowl combine apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, brown sugar and cooked bacon.

Step 3

In medium bowl combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. 

Step 4

Remove biscuits from tube and space out evenly on prepared cookie sheet. Use bottom of a can to press down each biscuit until flattened and a shallow impression is formed for filling. Place 1/4 cup of filling on each biscuit and top with heaping tablespoon of cream cheese mixture.

Step 5

Bake for 18-24 minutes, or until edges of biscuits begin to turn golden. Remove and place cookie sheet on wire rack to cool, about 10 minutes.

Step 6

While Danishes cool, prepare glaze by combining milk, powdered sugar and vanilla in small bowl; mix until smooth. Use a fork to drizzle glaze over biscuits and serve immediately.
