Semi-Homemade Peach Danish

Peach recipes like this one (and my cherry danish) are my favorites because of how easy they are. A classic braided danish uses puff pastry dough and peach slices, but this recipe makes it even easier. It is semi-homemade, using pie filling and canned biscuits. Just fold them into a muffin pan and bake!

These golden brown danishes are the perfect hand food for any brunch or party. Between the soft biscuit and the sweet peach and glaze, this recipe is sure to be a hit.

2 Ingredients Needed

  • Biscuits: I love Pillsbury Grands! but you can use whatever your favorite biscuit brand is.
  • Peaches: One 20 ounce can of peach pie filling.

How to make Peach Danish

  • Open the can of biscuits and slice each strip in half (like you’re cutting a hamburger bun). Press each half into a muffin pan.
  • Cut peaches in pie filling into small bits with kitchen scissors. Fill center of the dough with about 2 tablespoons of pie filling.
  • Bake until the biscuits are golden and puffy. Cool, then use a sharp knife to help you remove the danish from the pan. They should pop right out. Cool completely before you drizzle glaze on top.
  • To make frosting: Whisk powdered sugar with extract and 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream in a small bowl. Drizzle over danish. Feel free to add some vanilla, lemon juice, or almond extract to the glaze for flavor.

Expert Tips

  • You can switch it up depending on your favorite fruit. Peach is a classic, but if you want to use another fruit pie filling, go for it!
  • The peaches may be too big to fit in the danish, so I cut mine in half, so they would fit better.
  • You can also use crescent roll dough if you prefer, instead of biscuits.

Storage

Store them in an airtight container or under plastic wrap for 3 days in the fridge or freeze them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months.
