There was a time when making pastries scared the life out of me. I still recall the struggles I faced when I encased the butter in dough. That was so long ago. Now, making croissants and Danish pastries has become my stress reliever. That's something I look forward to doing when I go to work. I am in a world of my own once I start working with pastries. When I see them double in size and finally smell the rich buttery aroma that fills the bakery, I feel my mission for the day is accomplished :)
Croissant dough is suitable to make Danish pastries. I just double the recipe good for a day's supply of croissants, pain au chocolat and pastries. Easy. I use fillings like jams, raisins, pastry cream and butter cream.
