Easy Danish Pastry - Pineapple Jam & Coconut
1 sheet ready frozen puff pastry
150g Pineapple Jam
4 - 5 tablespoons of unsweetened dessicated coconut
Half an egg - beaten for egg wash
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare a baking sheet with greased parchment paper.
2. Sprinkle some flour on the work surface. Place the pastry sheet on the work surface.
3. Using a pizza cutter, cut the puff pastry sheet into 4 strips, then horizontally cut 2 lines to make 12 rectangular sizes.
4. Poke holes at the base using a fork.
5. Divide the pineapple jam about 10g - 12g. Shape it like a log and place on the puff pastry.
6. Sprinkle about half teaspoon of dessicated coconut.
7. Fold both the ends, form like a small parcel. Seam side down. Crimp the edges with a fork or leave them "open".
8. Poke holes on the surface using a fork.
9. Egg wash and sprinkle some dessicated coconut.
10. Place the pastries onto the baking sheet.
11. Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.
*Note that I made some other shapes. Feel free to cut and shape the pastry dough into any shapes & sizes you like.
Freshly baked ! They are best eaten warm on the day of baking. Time for some flaky dainty sweet Danish pastries! My big kids liked it while I find them rather too sweet. Anyway, ain't dessert suppose to be sweet ? So I'm enjoying these sweet treats with a cup of green tea ^-^!
