Ingredients

  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 apple, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pear, peeled, thinly sliced

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In small bowl, stir cream cheese, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon milk until smooth; set aside. In large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 1/4 cup softened butter and 2 tablespoons sugar until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in 2/3 cup milk until stiff dough forms.
  • 3
    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Make a shallow well in center of each with fingers and back of spoon. Fill each well with about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture.
  • 4
    Cut slices of apple and pear in half widthwise; fan 3 half-slices over top of each Danish (2 apple, 1 pear or vice-versa). Combine 1 tablespoon melted butter and the honey; lightly brush on fruit slices.

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon; serve warm.

  • Cover and refrigerate any remaining Danish.
