Very shiny and beautiful apricot Danish pastries, with buttery, fluffy pastry. Filled with pastry cream and top with apricot. Lovely and delicious treat for any time that you can make at home.

Apricot Danish Pastries

This is my favourite Danish pastry, love the taste, the color and the look of the shiny dome apricot. With homemade pastry cream (you can search the recipe on my blog here), or you can use custard. Top with apricot or any fruit you like, the most important is put a glaze of apricot jam to make it shiny.

Apricot Danish Pastries

Take 1/3 of the danish pastry dough on a floured worktop, roll it into  1 cm thick, and cut into square. Be careful not to over roll the dough, as ths butter will leak. Fold it to a triangle, then use a knife to cut two edges but don’t cut through. Then open it as ths photo shown.

Add some pastry cream on the square, then place one apricot on top. Brush some egg wash on the pastry to give it nice golden color. Bake in preheated oven at 220C for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
