Day 29 (Cont'd) and Day 30

As I said, all we did today was laminate our puff pastry dough.  Since you've already seen how dough is laminated, I will continue with the danish production pictures. :-)

The third and final piece of danish dough went to String Danish.  Now, this is what most people think of when they think danish.

 It starts...with a piece of dough.
 Rolled out to 20 inches, half of it gets brushed with melted butter
After being sprinkled with liberal amounts of cinnamon and sugar, the dough gets folded in half and chilled

When it's nice and cold, it gets cut into strips

and twisted like breadsticks

Now, since we made small, individual danishes, we got to make whatever shape we wanted instead of just big round ones.  Each strip got to do something a little different.  Here are some of the ones I did.

A curly S

Cute little swirlys and a little cup

Some kind of twisted knot things that I made up

And a big X thing.....

They all got filled with cream cheese filling and baked...mmm

The finished product gets drizzled with glaze and eaten 

Well, that will do it for danishes!  We're off school on Monday...so Tuesday we're making things with puff pastry and I'll finish my croissants.  :-)

Oh, by the way...

Celeste says *HI* :-)
