I had a LOT of cooking magazines hanging around, along with recipes printed off the net. I got ambitious one day and put them all on here. I've tried some of them, and left my feedback on those. If you try anything, leave a comment and let me know!

Apple Danish Pies
From Taste of Home Cooking for 2 Winter 2008
1/3 C sugar
1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 C chopped peeled tart apples
1/4 C unsweetened apple juice
1 tube (4oz) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 pkg (3oz) cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C confectioners' sugar
2 tsp 2% milk
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples and juice; toss to coat. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat.
Separate crescent dough into four triangles. On a lightly floured surface, roll two triangles into 5" circles. Place each into an 8oz ramekin, pressing dough onto the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides.
In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Spread over dough in ramekins. Top with apple mixture. Roll out remaining crescent dough into 4" circles; place over filling. Cut slits in top.
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over pies. Serve warm.
I am in no way claiming that these recipes are original to me. I have tried to give credit to the creator of each recipe wherever possible. If there isn't credit, it is because I don't know where the recipe originated. If you see a problem, please contact me.
