Easy Cherry “Danish”

Easy Cherry Danish

If you are a baker you might balk at calling these Danish. They are not the traditional Danish we are used to. They are tasty, though, and easy to make. My Mom used to make a batch whenever she had unexpected guests. Ready in no time. I used cherry pie filling in these but you can use other fruit fillings or even make cheese Danish.




Easy Danish

 2 c. biscuit mix, like Bisquick or Jiffy Mix- I make my own.

2 T. sugar

1/2 c. butter

2/3 c. milk

assorted preserves or pie fillings or even sweetened cream cheese or ricotta for cheese Danish

1/2 c. confectioner’s sugar



Combine biscuit mix and sugar. Cut in butter. Stir in milk. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls on lightly greased baking sheet. Indent middle using spoon. Leave 2-3 inches in between as they grow. Spoon preserves, or pie filling, into indents. Bake in 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Combine confectioner’s sugar with enough milk to make a runny glaze. Drizzle over cooled Danish. Makes 12.
