This was a very popular danish at our town's Garden Club meeting, which many of the ladies raved about. The recipe was requested and I'm happy to have found it - can't wait to make it at home! So flaky and tasty and it looks easy to make, too.
any suggestions to lighten this up.. calories and carbs suggest this isa full meal for a pre-diabetic diet which is generally between 50-60 carbs
I have made several batches and the filling keeps creeping out from some where. I used the hard almond paste. Had a hard time getting it all mixed in without lumps. I baked them for a little over the 30 min, because one looked like it was still dough in the center.Personally, I think it's to much butter.
This was a huge hit! Everyone loved it, thought it was bought from a special bakery! And the best part was it is so easy to make!
This was the first time I have worked with puff pastry and I found it so fun and easy to use. This recipe was a hit, so I made it again the same week! I love almond and my family does as well. The second time I made it I used apple pie filling in the middle and glazed it. That was also a hit, but I think my favorite was the almond! Made it for Christmas, but it is so easy that I know I will make it anytime of year!
