Ingredients

  • 1 box of Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 7 tablespoons of real maple syrup
  • 8 oz bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs water
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbs whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Thaw Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry 10 to 15 minutes or until easy to handle.
  • Meanwhile cook bacon until crispy. Drain any grease off bacon.
  • Mix cream cheese and 4 tbs maple syrup until smooth and creamy.
  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees.
  • Roll Puff Pastry Sheets out on a lightly floured cookie sheet. Use a pizza cutter to cut each sheet into thirds vertically and then halves horizontally.
  • Lightly score a rectangle in each Puff Pastry slice.
  • Add a tablespoon of cream cheese filling to center of each Puff Pastry Slice.
  • Spread filling evenly in the scored rectangle center shape.
  • Evenly chop bacon and evenly distribute bacon pieces over each of the cream cheese fillings on the danishes.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg with 1 tablespoon of water and brush only the edges with a pastry brush. This adds a pretty golden color to the finished pastry.
  • Bake on a lightly greased baking pan at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden. Set to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and 3 tbs of real maple syrup to make icing. Transfer the icing to a small Zip-loc bag, seal, and cut off the tiniest tip of the bottom corner. Drizzle over the cooled danishes.
