Peach Cream Cheese Braided Danish

20160721_132116(1600x1200)These things look like they are hard to make but they are really easy.  Easy if you use ready made puff pastry sheets, that is.  I had fun with Google’s image search, using “puff + pastry + peaches’ as search terms I found a picture that looked like what I was aiming for and followed the link to the page it appeared on.  There’s a nice video how-to and the ingredient list at the link.20160721_120235(1600x1200)The recipe used canned peaches but we had fresh to use.  Mrs J peeled and sliced the fresh peaches we bought yesterday and we cooked them in 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of Splemda.  They were ripe enough that they just got a brief simmer.  We cooled them before proceeding.20160721_120445(1600x1200)I wish I had taken this photo after the “braids” were cut, the recipe video goes into that.20160721_112618(1600x1200)Here is one ready for the egg wash and sugar sprinkles.20160721_112850(1600x1200)It’s ready for the oven!  We have a convection oven that tends to cut down on the listed cooking times, we left these in a 400 oven for 10 minutes, then turned them around for another 10.  We cooked the two pieces separately, one stayed in a minute too long.20160721_134737(1600x1200)Delicious!

Enjoy!
