This recipe is located here. It can also be found on page 22 of December/January 2010 issue of Taste of Home.

This recipe did require some work, but boy were they amazing danish. They tasted like danish you would buy at a bakery. The recipe did make a ton of danish so in the future I would probably cut the recipe in half. I also think it would be great with apples or blueberries on top.

  • 2 packages of (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm of 2% milk (110 to 115)
  • 6 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 cup of cold butter
  • 1-1/2 cups of warm half-and-half cream (110 to 115)
  • 6 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 can (21 ounces) of cherry pie filling
  • ICING:
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, softened
  • 3 cups of confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Dash salt
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons of half-and-half cream
  • In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk.
  •  In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and the salt.
  • Cut in the butter until crumbly.
  • Add the yeast mixture, cream and egg yolks.
  • Stir the mixture until it forms a soft dough (the dough will be sticky).
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Punch down the dough and divide into quarters.
  • Roll each portion of dough into an 18-in. x 4-in. rectangle; cut into 1-in. x 4-in. strips.
  • Place two strips side by side and twist together. Shape the dough into a ring. Pinch the ends together.
  •  Repeat with remaining strips.
  • Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2-in.-deep indentation in the center of each danish.
  • Fill each danish with about 1 tablespoon of pie filling.
  • Bake at 350 for 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
  • For icing, in a large bowl, beat butter until fluffy. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, salt and enough cream to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over rolls. Yield: 3 dozen.
