Fruit Additions: Feel free to add in a few blueberries, a couple of raspberries, or some sliced strawberries to each danish. Look at using canned apple pie filling, cherry pie filling or making your own version to dollop on top.Consider adding a spoonful of your favorite jam, marmalade, or even curd! They are all flavorful options that will look and taste great.Don't overcrowd the air fryer. It's important to keep space between the danish so they cook properly. Add fruit, chocolate, or jam. I you want to add some extra flavor, feel free to add some sliced fruit, drizzled chocolate, or your favorite jam to the danish. Air Fryer Differences: Every air fryer is a little different, so keep in mind that the cook time may need to be adjusted depending on your model. If it cooks too quickly, turn down the heat or shorten the cook time. Or if they aren't done when you check them, cook for an additional minute or two.Cutting Puff Pastry Dough: Try to cut the danish so they are all the same size. This will allow them to cook evenly and look much better when you are serving them.
