Danish pastry with pastry cream filling

 When I just started baking, I always thought that laminated pastry was out of my reach.


Well, I didn't say that it becomes easy for me, but it's not as hard as I thought (anyway it still takes time to make). Maybe I learn to understand it more and more each time that I made it. 
And the most important thing than good formula is  the temperature, high temperature will melt the butter, so if your kitchen is hot, try making it in other room (one of my friend tempering chocolate in his bed room, haha) that you can control it. Return it to the refrigerate when it become too soft to handle. But try to work quickly esp. for Danish pastry like this one, as it contains yeast and it will start working if you working with it for too long.
You can use flour for preventing the dough from sticking, but don't forget to use a brush to remove excess flour from the pastry ^^.
Because this kind of pastry takes so much time, making small batch is not recommend (in my opinion), as you can keep the pastry (unbaked) in the freeze for 1 month (cover it completely to prevent dryness).
Beside from pastry cream, you can fill it with many kinds of filling, such as white sauce or cheese cream. Hope you having fun making it as much as me, haha.
