Danish Cranberry Apple Crescent Braid
One of my favorite pastries is a freshly baked danish stuffed with a good deal of deliciousness.
Around 1915, Herman Gertner, owner of a chain of New York restaurants brought Lauritz C. Klittleng, a Danish baker, to the United States to sell Danish pastry. It soon became a highly sought after delicacy. President Woodrow Wilson had the Danish baker make Danish pastries for his wedding that very December.
The problem with famous hometown bakeries is that they are popular. I’ve learned the painful pastry lover’s lesson that if you don’t get to the bakery early in the morning, some other lucky chap will have enjoyed your favorite danish. The good news is, it is easy to make freshly baked danishes you can enjoy without beating the morning rush to the bakery.
I just love this Cranberry Apple Crescent Braid. It has all the good stuff, and you can adapt this recipe to include everything you love in a pastry.
