Once you learn how to make a Danish pastry dough, all the work hard is done! Then you can start to make different kind of Danish pastries, they always look so lovely at the bakery, with apricot, or chocolate, or raisin…all different shape.

This time we make these cinnamon and raisin Danish pastries, the method is like making cinnamon buns, roll it then slice it. The layers of the pastry is so buttery and fluffy, almost like puff pastry but is a bread. With the cinnamon, raisin and pastry cream, it is just perfect! Nothing better than the homemade fresh bake of….everything! 🙂
