Vegan Cinnamon Apple Danish’s

Vegan Cinnamon Apple Danish’s

At this point we know there’s no escape. This next week is going to be miles of rough road, it’s going to call for coddling and coddling by definition calls for butter and cinnamon. Buckets of butter and cinnamon.

These cinnamon danish are based on one of my old guilty pleasures, the McDonald’s cinnamon danish. I don’t even think they sell them anymore and I haven’t had one in years. So I rebuilt it from memory and it’s pretty close! The pastry is flaky, the filling is loaded with cinnamon and the icing adds vanilla to the mix. I’m cutting some photos below to save length, but if you’re new to bread dough you can find mixing instructions and photos in one of my other bread recipes.

This does need to rise overnight, so start them the day before. you can cut this recipe in half if you like.

  • Total Time: 35 minutes 
  • Yield: 6



  • frozen vegan pastry dough


  • 2 apples, peeled, chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup apple cider or water


  • 2 tbs Follow Your Heart vegan cream cheese, cold
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Allow the pastry dough thaw out.
  2. Make the filling: in large pan add everything but the corn starch and apple cider. Cook the apples for 5 minutes until softened. Once soft combine the apple cider and corn starch removing any lumps and pour over the apples. Continue to cook and stir for a few minutes until it thickens. Remove from heat, set aside.
  3. Sprinkled the thawed out dough lightly with flour. Roll dough to make the square even and a little larger. With a pizza cutter create long strips. Connect the ends of two strips together and press. You can use water on your finger tips to help seal if needed. Twist the strips from the middle going outward and create a circle with them use one of the strips to create a bottom. They don’t have to be sealed together. they will come together when you bake.
  4. Fill the dough in the center with the apple filling and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  5. Combine the icing ingredients and drizzle over the slightly cooled danish’s and top with optional toasted pecans. If the icing is too thick add additional almond milk 1 tsp at a time until you achieve the desired consistency.
