Keyword: Blueberry
Servings: 8 danishes

Ingredients

  • 1 package of puff pastry
  • 1 pound of blueberries
  • pastry cream
  • flour for dusting
  • vegan margarine or neutral-tasting oil for brushing tops

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  •  Use parchment paper or a baking mat to line a silicone baking sheet.
  • Remove half a package of puff pastry and keep the other half in the fridge.
  • On a lightly floured cutting board, roll out the puff pastry to approximately 9"x 9" square.
  • Slice the puff pastry dough so that you have an even amount of strips on each side, leaving about an inch or two in the middle to put the blueberries.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of pastry cream/custard in the centre and place blueberries on top.
  • Cross the strips of dough so that you contain the pastry cream/blueberries.
  • Brush the tops with vegan margarine or neutral-tasting oil.
  • Bake danishes for 15-20 minutes in a conventional oven or until the top is golden brown. My danishes took about 12 minutes in a convection oven.

Notes

I used the recipe found on the Grumpy Sailor blog for the pastry cream/custard inside these danishes. This step is optional but recommended!
