Home made danish pastry dough simple and easy to make
I don’t think you can find ready made Danish pastry dough just like Puff pastry dough; you need to make your own. I think you can make fake Danish pastry using puff pastry dough, still for original you need to work hard. Yes I mean it, it is really time consuming, but still worth the effort, and here I am posting a simple method to make perfect homemade Danish pastry dough.
This is best Danish pastry dough you can get, so smooth to work with, and at the same produce tasty pastry. Difference between puff pastry and Danish pastry is former one is devoid of egg in the recipe. Eggless friends I don’t know the substitution.
For any pastries you need to make sure to use best quality butter European style Butter. Yes butter is key ingredient in a pastry. First day make the dough and let if ferment for overnight in refrigerator. Yes cold fermentation brings out the flavor.
Then next day incorporate the butter into the dough and then you can make the Danish pastry. If you start incorporating the butter in the morning you can make the dish in the evening that is what I did.
The dough is super soft you can play with it like play dough; I was so happy and finally made delicious Danish pastry with it.
Here comes the homemade dough recipe.
