Danish pastry

This butter-rich pastry begins as a yeast dough that is rolled out, dotted with butter, then folded and rolled again several times, as for puff pastry. The dough may be lightly sweetened and is usually flavored with vanilla or cardamom. Baked Danish pastries (often referred to simply as Danish) contain a variety of fillings including fruit, cream cheese, almond paste and spiced nuts.
