My Mother-In-Law gave me this recipe after we were first married. It is so easy and tastes so wonderful. It's well loved by many. I can't say for sure if it's authentically Danish, but we served it at our Danish Dinner when we were doing an International Dinner Club. Everyone loved it!
Cream cheese frosting is good on this.
NOTE: The pastry-to-topping ratio is correct. It's very thick, and must be spooned onto the pastry and then spread to the edges, not over the sides. It will be thicker than the pastry. This seems like it may be getting too brown, but as long as it is still a nice brown, 1 hour is OK. Also be advised there is no sugar in the Danish Pastry itself, the sweetness will come from whatever you choose to frost it with! I use cream cheese frosting with almond flavoring.
