Who doesn’t love a good cheese Danish?! They are rich, creamy, highly satisfying and, when combined with apple and pear, are a perfectly seasonal treat to serve up on a crisp fall day – pair them with coffee and you’ve got yourself a need-to-have treat. 

To make these mouthwatering Apple-Pear Cream Cheese Danishes, have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go. In a small bowl, stir together ingredients for the cream cheese mixture, and in a larger bowl, stir together ingredients for the dough.


Peel and slice a Bosc pear and a Pink Lady apple (or whatever you prefer). You’ll only need about half of each, so save the extra for snacking!

Once the dough is ready, drop rounded tablespoonfuls on a lightly greased baking sheet. Make a shallow well in the center of each and fill with the cream cheese mixture.

Top each with a few slices of apple and pear, then brush the fruit slices with melted butter and honey.
