Interesting things to do with danish pastry dough?

  • l

I've been on a Nigella Lawson food processor danish pastry kick for the past few months. Instead of making little individual pastries, I usually make long strudelly filled rolls, and then glaze them. I've done cherry, strawberry, chocolate, and poached apricot. All of them turned out fabulously.

Anyway, I was wondering about other fun possibilities for the dough, such as- what happes if you layer it a few more times into a loaf? Would it rise and bake correctly? Can I make simple cheating croissants? Would the dough make a nice flat savoury pie or galette base? I think most herbs, ham, gruyere, etc. would be nice.

Give me ideas, suggestions, and tips. Has anyone else experimented with danish dough? Thanks!

  1. Make bread pudding with any leftover slightly stale danish? I usually add pears to my bread pudding, but have also used apples, peaches so the fruit in the danish would be great. I would just watch the sugar I add, cut back so the bread pudding won't be too sweet.
