Croissant and Danish Pastries

August 22, 2008

“1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8..9..10..11..12..13..14..15..16..17..18..19..20.. Into the fridge. Fast! Fast!” Wow, I didn’t know that making danish pastry isn’t easy. You must work under a cool temperature and all the ingredients have to be cold. And you need to work fast, especially in rolling out the dough. Roll out only for about 20 seconds and rest it in the fridge for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then roll out again and rest again. We repeated that process for 3 times before cutting the dough into shapes. It’s a great experience anyway though I don’t fancy danish pastry because of its flakiness which causes a lot of mess when eating it. Haha.
