Recipe Notes

Best served warm. This would be wonderful with any type of pie filling. Peaches, strawberry or cherry would all be amazing. You can just skip the cinnamon sugar part for the strawberry or cherry fillings. Also, if you don't need so many danishes, just use one tube of crescent rolls and save the leftover pie filling for another time. Just put it in a container with a lid and store in the fridge for up to a week.
