Lemon Curd Danish

Products Used



    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Unfold pastry sheet. Cut the pastry sheet lengthwise into 6 strips. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet, making 12 strips in all.
    3. Twist each pastry strip then fold into a spiral. Place the pastry onto the baking sheet, leaving an inch between each for spreading. Brush the pastry sheet with melted butter.
    4. Place 1 heaping tablespoon lemon curd into the center of each pastry. Bake for 18 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
    5. Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.
    6. Place the confectioners' sugar into a small bowl. Whisk in the lemon juice and milk, until the mixture is desired consistency (may need to add a little more milk if icing is too thick). Drizzle over the edges of the danish. Serve immediately

    A friend of mine made some lemon Danish, for me as a birthday present knowing how much I love lemons. They were wonderful. She forgot to give me the recipe for them, these look so similar to the ones she made. I want to make them these look delicious too.
