Apple Danish Braid
Take a shortcut with store-bought puff pastry and make this quick Apple Danish Braid. It’s a simple yet impressive-looking dessert. Every bite is layered with flaky pastry, caramelized apples and cranberries. This dessert is no fuss, easy to make, and so delicious. Finish it off with a light drizzle of sweet glaze, and enjoy!
Start with the filling. Sauté the apples and cranberries until lightly caramelized. Roll out the puff pastry 2 inches longer than the length. Spoon the filling down the center of the puff pastry and cut angled strips on either side of the filling. Braid by crossing the strips over the filling, overlapping each other. Last step, brush the pastry with an egg wash and add a sprinkle of coarse sugar. Bake until golden brown and serve drizzled with the glaze. When you need something easy and delicious this is absolutely it. Done and done!
