Sunny-Side-Up Apricot Danishes


Sunny-Side-Up Apricot Danishes ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking & Food Blog

“A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition.” — William Arthur Ward

This absolutely scrumptious recipe is from vegan recipe genius Hannah Kaminsky’s Vegan Desserts, page 112.

These devilish little danishes were made from homemade puff pastry topped with a sweet vegan cream cheese and fresh summer apricots and baked into buttery, flaky perfection. I am proud/ashamed to say that Keith and I ate 6 of these in one sitting! We just couldn’t help ourselves. It had been decades since I had a cheese danish, so I had a lot of lost time to make up for. 😉

Homemade puff pastry takes several hours of rising so plan to make this one about 8 hours in advance, but it is soooo worth the wait, and the actual work time is minimal.

Danish Fact: Danishes originated in Austria, not Denmark.

  1. I’ve never made homemade puff pastry. Now I know why! I can barely let cookie dough chill 3 hours! These look really yummy (except I can’t eat eggs–joke :-)) (Well, I can’t eat eggs but I was really just teasing.) I really like the square cut parchment paper under the Danish. Nice touch!

  2. i must confess i know nothing about vegan food or vegan cooking but these recipes sound delicious and i’m sure they are. Very glad to have found your site and thank you for following mine.
    My best to you
