Danish pastries are the flakiest and the most buttery of all the sweet rolls. These cinnamon rolls just melt in your mouth.This recipe takes all day to make but the results are really worth it. To make it easier you can complete the recipe through step 26 on one day, and then make the actual rolls the next day. The recipe may seem complicated but it's really not. Most of the time the dough is either resting or rising. For this recipe you'll need a pastry brush and something that will allow you to evenly distribute flour over your work surface. A sifter or a shaker of some type is fine. Also, you must use real butter. It can be salted or unsalted (I use salted) but do not try to substitute margarine. The recipe will not work with margarine. You'll end up with a big mess in your oven if you use margarine. Also, in step #11 where it says to thoroughly flour your work surface, you need to resist the temptation to knead any more flour into the dough. The dough is SUPPOSE to be that wet.
Note: If you wish to measure the flour by weight rather than by volume, 3 1/4 cups flour is approximately equal to 14.33 ounces or 406 grams.
