This month's Daring Baker's challenge was from the Kelly at Sass and Veracity. What a great challenge. I never would have ventured into Danish land and I am glad I did. The recipe was easy to follow and Kelly's helpful links made it so easy. I was able to watch how to fold and fill the Danish versus trying to visualize from words. Plus, the best thing was that I was able to make this in my Mom's kitchen with my mom! I see my mom once a year and it was a real treat to make this with her. The extra benefit is that my entire family was able to enjoy the tasty outcome! They have heard me talk about DBrs and have seen my photos but now they actually benefited from the fruits of the exercise. I chose to do a mixed berry jam with a cream cheese filling dolloped on top. I used strawberries and blueberries that we picked with my mom last year straight from the freezer and cooked them down until they were a jammy consistency.
I used my mom's mixer that I absolutely loved when I was young. New worlds opened up to me with this mixer.
I will definitely make this recipe again. Thank-you Kelly and the great group of Daring Bakers.
