I printed out a recipe for this Danish Pastry dough and made the recipe: I was not happy with the way the dough came out at all...it seemed way to stiff from the beginning and it had some brown sugar in it...which seemed strange....the dough just did not handle easily for me. They did not bake right for me at all. After making these I went back to the site where I 'thought I had copied the recipe'...It had a different recipe on it!! I looked at my copy of the recipe...only to discover I had printed out a recipe from another site...Ooooh! I knew there was something odd when I saw the brown sugar ingredient!! Though these are very tastey...they are not what a Danish should be at least to me anyway...though they used my good butter,organic flour, ect...I will not repeat this recipe or mistake copying again...hopefully! This recipe below is from Epicurious. The one I wanted was from 'Joe Pastry.com' I have not made it before and wanted to try it....
I also have another recipe for Danish Pastry that I have the dough almost finished...I will post pictures later today...hopefully..they will turn out to be a little better...as I'm just a novice baker... the recipe is not from Joe Pastry...it's another different recipe...I know it makes a nice Danish Pastry!! I just hope I can have a successful bake with the next batch! I have made Danish Pastry once before it was a sourdough recipe...I made bearclaws and fruit danish with it...it was pretty good!
Danish Pastry is made with yeast. I used Cherries and Apricot for the topping with a sugar fondant drizzle.
The dough just before rolling out and cutting>>>you can see the butter peaking through>>>not good!!
The dough was started last nite. One good thing my new camera now automatic sets the image size...that's a big help posting.
We ate some and they are really good!! But as I said not what they should be like!!
I hope the next recipe turns out more like a Danish should....this seemed more like a puff pastry than a danish pastry....
