Delicious! Always get 'ummm!' responses when I serve this. The Danish has apple filling and is topped with a browned butter glaze.

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)

Rating: 4.5 stars 91
Flaky puff pastry is filled with chocolate-hazelnut spread and all-fruit raspberry spread in this delectable treat. I concocted this on a whim one afternoon, and after one bite, I knew it was one for the books! Simple, elegant, and delicious.

Almond Bear Claws

Rating: 4.5 stars 40
These flaky Danish pastries are a time-consuming project, but they're a perfect way to show people how much you love them! I like serving them at special brunches. The puff pastry dough and almond filling can be made ahead of time, and the pastries can be frozen before baking.

These are made like cinnamon rolls; however, you make a circle with the dough log and cut only part way through, turning each piece partially on its side to make a beautiful design.
