The Technique

Danish Pastry Dough
Tutorial No. 2

The guide for this particular classic dough is broken down into several tutorials so as to provide the most comprehensive instruction & visual guide during each step of the process. Authentic Danish Pastry Dough requires a bit of rest time throughout the procedure not only to allow the gluten to relax during rolling but to ensure the butter remains as cold as possible. Once the dough has been blended & the layers have been added, you will have opened the door to a world of fine possibilities in which it may be applied. Danish Pastry Dough relies on lift not only from the folds that create steam, lift & flakiness during the baking process but yeast which offers lovely texture. Working with this particular dough is much like adding layers to a pie dough, however expect a springiness during the rolling process from the yeast. The first tutorial focuses on simply blending the dough properly. The second tutorial focuses on rolling the dough.

One recipe of dough will yield enough to prepare two large danish or several individual pastry styles. 

1/4 cup warm water
1 {1/4-oz} packet 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

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. Use as directed in specific recipe applications.

Tutorial No. 2

The first step to creating beautiful, flaky breakfast pastries is preparing the basic dough. Next, a bit a rest time in the refrigerator allows the gluten to relax so it will be ready to fold & layer the butter throughout. If the dough becomes warm & the butter begins to melt at anytime during the process, cover & chill it for 30 minutes. See Tutorial No. 1: Danish Pastry Dough for images No. 1 through No. 7 that illustrate the first portion of the procedure, the blending.
