Two kinds of danish rolls -- sweet & savory
Still keeping on practicing my lamination skills -- butter consumption in Seattle must've increased noticably since I moved here!
First the danish roll with cranberry cream cheese filling. The dough is exactly the same as the cream cheese danish posted here. Shaping is different:
1) Sheet out to 1/8inch thick, 16inch long, spread on filling
2. roll up and cut into 1inch thickness
3)proof and bake as posted here
Nice open crumb with honeycomb holes.
The tartness from dried cranberries complements well with the richness.
Now the savory version with WW flour and pesto filling.

3. Roll up from both ends, meeting in the middle. Wrap and put in fridge for 30min for easier cutting.
4. Cut into 1inch thickness

Pesto, cheese, sausage, classic combo for a very good reason.
Some ww flour add another dimention to rich danish dough, and it goes well with savory fillings.
