Peach Cream Cheese Braided Danish
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.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.I wish I had taken this photo after the “braids” were cut, the recipe video goes into that.Here is one ready for the egg wash and sugar sprinkles.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.Delicious!
