Dry Aged Hickory Smoked Bacon Slices

ingredients
1 (8 oz) package Jones Dairy Farm Dry Aged Bacon, chopped into bite-sized pieces
4 medium apples (2 cups), peeled and diced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup light brown sugar
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 (16.3 oz.) can refrigerated biscuits

For Glaze

2 teaspoons milk
4 teaspoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350˚F.

Add bacon to medium sauté pan and cook until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towel-lined plate and set aside.

In large bowl combine apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, brown sugar and cooked bacon.

In medium bowl combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. 

Remove biscuits from tube and space out evenly on prepared cookie sheet. Use bottom of a can to press down each biscuit until flattened and a shallow impression is formed for filling. Place 1/4 cup of filling on each biscuit and top with heaping tablespoon of cream cheese mixture.

Bake for 18-24 minutes, or until edges of biscuits begin to turn golden. Remove and place cookie sheet on wire rack to cool, about 10 minutes.

While Danishes cool, prepare glaze by combining milk, powdered sugar and vanilla in small bowl; mix until smooth. Use a fork to drizzle glaze over biscuits and serve immediately.
