Recipe Scene: Cherry Danishes

This is an easy, cheats version of a cherry Danish. To make proper Danishes takes quite some time – all that flaky pastry rolling and folding. For this version however I use bought puff pastry.

You can brush the tops with milk before cooking for a soft bun, or brush with water and top with sesame seeds if you prefer that. Brushing just plain water on the top will give you a crustier top. Alternatively you can dust with flour or just leave plain. […]
