makes two Danish pastry braids

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
Fresh Lemon-Cream Cheese
1 egg white
Granulated sugar
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp buttermilk
1/4 cup chopped, toasted pecans

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. See Tutorial No. 1: Danish Pastry Dough for images that illustrate this portion of the procedure.

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. See Tutorial No. 2: Danish Pastry Dough for images that illustrate this portion of the procedure.

Roll 1 piece of the dough into a 10 x 16-inch rectangle. Fold the dough into thirds & transfer to a parchment paper-lined half sheet pan. Unfold the dough to the original 10 x 16-inch rectangle. Dollop half of the Fresh Lemon-Cream Cheese Filling down the center of the dough using an ice cream disher. Spread it to fill the center third portion of the dough with an offset spatula. Cut 12 {1/2-inch} strips of dough at an angle using a pastry wheel. Crisscross the strips alternating one from the left & one from the right to cover the filling. Gently press the dough pieces together to seal. Brush the egg white over the dough & sprinkle with granulated sugar. Cover with plastic wrap & allow to rise 30 minutes or until puffy. Repeat with the remaining portion of dough.

Preheat the over to 400 degrees. Bake one pan of the filled dough at a time 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven. Cool 20 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice & 1 teaspoon buttermilk in small bowl. Drizzle the glaze over the danish, then sprinkle with the pecans. Let stand until set, about 20 minutes. Cut into slices.

How To Make Fresh Lemon-Cream Cheese Danish

The first step to creating a flaky Fresh Lemon-Cream Cheese Danish to slice & share is preparing the basic dough then allowing it to rest so it will be ready to fold & layer the butter throughout. Once that has been accomplished, the dough will be ready for shaping, topping with the filling & baking. A simple glaze & toasted pecans finish this breakfast classic flawlessly.
