Warm your oven to 425°F.
In a saucepan, simmer the apple quarters in water for about 4 minutes or until they just begin to soften. Drain water, mix in sugar, and allow the mix to cool.
Segment each pastry sheet into six equal rectangles.
Dampen the edges of a rectangle, then center your sweetened apple. Top it off with a slit pastry piece.
Press the edges together to form a sealed parcel. Make all six parcels this way.
Position the pastries on a parchment-covered baking tray. Lightly dust with sugar.
Bake for a crispy, golden perfection over 12-15 minutes.
Relish the freshly baked Apple Danish while it’s still warm to capture its full essence. If there are any leftovers (a rare occurrence!), store in the fridge in a sealed container. Warm them up slightly before serving next time, and they’ll be as good as new!
