Some easy peasy danishes I whipped up today which were so good I wanted to post a recipe so I could make them again.

Quick & Easy Danishes;

2 squares puff pastry
Cherry jam (or any jam you prefer) + 1/2 tspn vanilla extract, stirred to combine

Cinnamon sugar
1 tblspn melted butter

Heaped 1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 tspn vanilla extract
15ml tblspn milk or maple syrup

Preheat oven to 200C.  Place baking paper over a large baking pan.

Place sheets of pastry over a pastry board or non stick flat surface.  Slice one square of puff pastry into quarters – set aside 2 squares and slice the other 2 squares into strips.  Place a tablespoon of jam into the middle of 2 of the squares set aside.  Place strips of pastry over the top then scrunch up the sides of the pastry into a round.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out remaining square of pastry around 1-2cm, then brush melted butter all over the base, and sprinkle over cinnamon sugar generously.  Roll up the pastry carefully, then slice into 6-8 rounds.  Use your hands to gently squash each round of pastry, opening up the sides into a rose shape.

Place danishes onto baking pan and brush a bit of milk over the cinnamon roll danishes.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed up and golden brown.  Allow to cool a bit then drizzle over icing.

Combine icing sugar, vanilla and enough milk to stir briskly into a thick icing.

Makes: 8 pastries
