Prune Danish?

P Macias Jul 26, 2007 06:17 AM

Where can I find prune danish? and which Jewish bakeries are the NYers favs?
My friend, who was born in Brooklyn and left as a small child for California is going back for the first time. One of her most cherished memories is of prune danish and they just don't have them in SoCal.

      Just picked up some prune danish for a friend. Nice place and will be going back.

      Andre's is the best to me also, though The Adore on 13th between 5th and University used to make a great one too.

          Zaro's also has prune danishes. Will have to give Andre's and Glaser's a try. My dad down in Delaware is a prune danish fan and he gets his supply in New York! We were just talking about the prune danish scarcity tonight.

            Went back to re-supply on the prune danish (they are $3.00 each; tasty yet pricey in quantity.) Shared a slice of the the powdered sugar Napoleon that had excellent creme custard and tried some cherry-cheese strudel ($6.00 for a 4" by 5" slice) that was a little dry but with quite a generous filling of cheese and some cherries.

            Looking up prune danish makers has become a hobby as they simply are less popular these days.

              Moshe's on Second Avenue makes excellent miniature prune danishes...

                Famous Kosher Bakery in Staten Island (2208 Victory Blvd) makes a standard and sturdy prune danish - the filling was quite generous and they take special orders.

                A few of us are headed back to NYC again and believe me, we'll stock up before we leave.
                I can't find any in L.A. even.
                Thanks so much for all the recs. I'm going to see if any of them ship. Pretty fragile stuff but where there's a will there's a way, or so I've heard.
