Words


1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
5 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
2 eggs, lightly beaten

FILLING
1 1/2 cups sliced Lady Alice apples
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons clarified butter

GLAZE:
2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon milk


  1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  2.  Stir in the yeast mixture, milk and eggs until blended. 
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead about 20 times (dough will be sticky). Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 
  4. For filling, combine the apple slices, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into an 18-in. x 15-in. rectangle; brush with butter. Spread filling to within 1/2 in. of edges. 
  5. Starting with a short side, fold a third of the dough over filling; repeat with other side, making a 15-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Pinch seams to seal. Cut each into 15 slices. Fold each slice, forming a triangle. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. 
  6. Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over Danish pastry. Yield: 2 1/2 dozen.
