Description

Cherry Cheese Danish, need I say more? These are the perfect size to just pop in your mouth. They’re like little sliders.

I love cheese Danish pastries. Actually, I love cream cheese. Let me rephrase that: I love the entire cheese family. I think I’ve mentioned this once or twice or a thousand times before.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DOUGH:
  • ½ cups Milk- Scalded
  • ½ cups Water
  • ⅓ cups Butter
  • 1 whole Brown Egg
  • 3-½ cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • 1 package (2 1/4 Teaspoons) Yeast
  • _____
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 16 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 2 whole Brown Egg Yolks
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 can (21 Oz. Can) Cherry Pie Filling
  • _____
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon To 2 Tablespoons Whole Milk

Preparation

Making the dough:

1. I use the dough cycle on my bread maker when making bread.
2. First you need to scald your milk. Put the milk into a small saucepan and turn on high. Once the milk starts to boil, remove from heat and let it cool.
3. Add milk, water and butter that has been cut into slices into the bread machine pan.
4. Beat egg in a bowl until frothy. Add to the bread machine pan.
5. Add flour, salt and sugar on top of the wet ingredients. Make a small divot in the flour and add the yeast last in the indentation.
6. Close the lid on your bread machine and set it on the dough cycle.
7. When dough cycle is complete, remove dough from the bread machine and put onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough a few times and add a little flour so that it’s not sticky.
8. Separate dough into three equal balls.
9. Roll one of your dough balls out with a lightly floured rolling pin.
10. Cut dough into 3-inch squares with a pizza cutter. Each ball should make nine squares.

Making the filling:

1. Mix cream cheese in your mixer until creamy.
2. Add egg yolks, sugar, flour and lemon juice and mix until creamy.
3. Add a spoonful of filling to each of the dough squares.
4. Pinch two of the opposite corners together.
5. Then pinch the other two corners together to form a pouch. Roll the top of the pouch under one turn.
6. Get out some toothpicks and break them in half. Stick a toothpick though the top of your pouch where all four corners come together. Repeat this with the other two dough balls.
7. Put your Danish pastries into a large greased metal pan.
8. Cover with a pastry towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
9. Spoon a tablespoon of cherry pie filling on the top of each Danish. Put in the oven and bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.

Making the glaze:

1.Mix powdered sugar and milk together in a bowl. Add milk 1 teaspoon at a time until the glaze is creamy, but not runny.
2. Once Danish pastries are cool, drizzle the glaze over the top with a spoon. Add as much as you like. Put on a plate and enjoy!
