PB+J Danish + 3 more and strawberries!

So after the success of the danishes at the last EarthSave potluck, Alison(ex-office manager) and Ben(current office manager) of EarthSave Canada both asked me to make them Danishes. And I sure did:

Peanut Butter and Jam Danish:

I know that they went over famously because Ben cute one or two up and let everyone at EarthSave for the day and everyone in all the other offices at the SPEC building have some and I got many thanks from random people for the Danish. Kate, who’s on the board of directors dropped by for a couple of minutes and about 10 after she left she phoned to say that the Danish she took was good.Heh.


u-pick local strawberries

I ran into Mimi on Monday morning and she told me to go by her house and she’d leave me a bag of local strawberries from when she went to a u-pick farm the week before. Well after sitting outside in the sun in a Ziploc bag there was a ton of strawberry juice the strawberries were now floating in. I tried some right from the bag and these were the best strawberries I have ever tasted. So flavourful. Incredible. So I used the strawberries and the juice to make some filling for the danishes. It’s just like strawberry jam, but it’s not.

ta-da!


Now I would like to say thank you to KT who introduced me to Danish making after bisquing forever about wanting Danishes. And lolo never gave the Danish recipe to us testers for her book last year, but who needs that now?
KT is an incredible baker at Sweetpea Bakery in Portland,OR.y’know,in that mimi mall or whateyvar. She takes really beautiful pictures of cakes and other things she bakes and here’s a review of Sweetpea. I tried a bunch of Sweetpea stuff last year from New Seasons(Sinclair?) but I’m super excited to go to the actual bakery-‘specially because Katie’s there.

WOW- it all looks too good! Becasue of you, I have been craving danishes for the past 3 months! (too bad I'm too lazy to make them right now....)

The strawberry "jam" sounds really good, too.

This danish business is out of control. I'm a big fan.

I've made your pb cinnamon rolls before, and people totally flipped out about them. This time I made three batches and every roll disappeared. Honestly, I much prefer your regular cinnamon rolls (I can only have a bite of the pb ones), but the brunch customers won't have it.

Mmm, they look SO good! I can't wait for the book, so I can try my hand at danishes.
