makes 2 dozen

1/4 cup warm water
1 {1/4-oz} package active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup frozen butter
1/2 cup whole buttermilk
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Fresh Blueberry-Ricotta Filling
Granulated sugar

Combine the water & the yeast. Set aside. Whisk together the flour, the sugar & the salt in a large bowl. Run the sticks of butter down the large holes of a box grater over the flour mixture. Gently toss them together just to coat the butter & distribute evenly throughout. Whisk together the buttermilk, the egg & the yeast mixture; pour it over the flour mixture. Swipe a rubber spatula around the bowl sides to gently moisten & incorporate the ingredients. Finish blending the ingredients by pressing them together using your hands. Shape the dough into a disc & place it in a clean bowl. Cover with plastic wrap & chill 8 to 24 hours. 

Remove the dough from the bowl & transfer to a lightly floured surface. Shape the dough into a 6-inch square. Roll the dough into a 10-inch square using a French rolling pin. Fold the dough into thirds, then make a 1/4 turn counterclockwise. The last fold should be closest to you. Roll the dough into a 10 x 16-inch rectangle, then fold the dough into thirds. Make a 1/4 turn counterclockwise. The last fold should be closest to you. Repeat this step two times. Cut the dough in half & wrap each piece with plastic. Chill the dough 30 minutes or up to 2 days. If the dough becomes warm & the butter begins to melt at anytime during the process, cover & chill it for 30 minutes.

Remove one piece of the dough from the refrigerator & cut it in half. Wrap & return one of the pieces to the refrigerator. Roll the remaining piece of dough into a 7 x 10-inch rectangle. Trim, if desired, to create crisp edges & a final measurement of 6 x 9-inches. Cut the dough into 6 squares. Transfer the dough squares to a parchment paper-lined half sheet pan. Brush the egg white over the entire surface. Dollop 1 heaping teaspoon of the Fresh Blueberry-Ricotta Filling in the center of each square. Fold the squares in half to create a triangular shape. Press the edges well to seal. Cut 3 slits in the top, brush with the egg white & sprinkle with granulated sugar Allow to rise 30 minutes or until puffy. During this time, repeat the entire process with the remaining portions of chilled dough.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake one pan of the pastries at a time 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven. Cool 10 minutes.

makes 1 1/4 cup

1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
2 Tbsp powdered sugar

Whisk together the sugar & the cornstarch in a 3 quart saucepan. Whisk in the lemon juice, then stir in the blueberries. Bring the mixture to a boil over Medium heat, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. When the mixture begins to thicken, stir constantly & reduce the heat to Medium-Low. The filling should bubble vigorously during the entire cooking process. Stir all over the pot sides & bottom to prevent scorching. Break the berries up using the spoon as it cooks. The mixture will thicken considerably then become thin as the juice is released from the berries. Cook an additional 5 minutes or until the mixture reduces to about 1 cup. As it cools, expect a very thick mixture that yields about 3/4 cup. Chill at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.

Fold together the blueberry mixture, the ricotta & the powdered sugar in a medium bowl until blended.

How To Make Fresh Blueberry-Ricotta Danish Turnovers

The first step to creating a flaky turnover-style Danish is to prepare the basic dough then allowing it to rest so it will be ready to fold & layer the butter throughout. Once that has been accomplished, it will be ready for shaping, filling, folding & baking. A few slits cut in the top of the dough using a paring knife will allow steam to escape during the baking process & prevent the turnovers from splitting & opening on the baking pan.
