First Daring Bakers Challenge-The Danish

I am now a proud member of the Daring Bakers, and this was my first challenge, and it was definitely that...a challenge. I made the Danish while my husband was out of town. I went to my moms house to make it because of her lovely kitchen and ended up sleeping over because of how time consuming it was. However it was absolutely worth it. I filled my danish with a cream cheese sauce with homemade strawberry jam. The two flavors paired wonderfully together. I had so much fun learning this new skill. I am excited for the next time I make it because there are things I would like to do differently. If anyone has a couple of days to try this out-do! You wont be dissappointed with the result. And sorry about the not so amazing post, I am running late for a flight to Vegas and when I got home I will post the recipe.

Kneadin the dough: and those arne't my hands kneadin it,
I had to take a break so my mom helped me out.

Now rolling it out, this time those are my hands-I regained my strength!
Now the dough with the butter blocked wrapped in the middle,
this has to be refrigerated for thirty minutes, rolled out and folded again,
repeated 3 times and after the last one refrigerated over night,
this is where its time consuming.

Lovely cream cheese and strawberry filling, I am really glad
I chose this pairing, it was delectable!
All braided and ready to bake!

With the leftover dough I made a little one and filled it only
with cream cheese filling because my lil sis is allergic to strawberries (I know how sad!)
But her little one turned out so cute!

And the finished product!
And a close up, to further document the delectable Danish challenge.
