Making REAL Danish Pastry

jiffypop | Jul 30, 2014 01:42 PM

Having decades-old memories of REAL Danish pastries from a bakery in a small town in Denmark. Light, crunchy, not these awful bread-dough things we have in US bakeries.

Before I leave this planet, I want to figure out how to make the REAL Danish pastries. I'd even invest in imported butter, if that's what it'll take. And I'd even get a kitchen scale to weigh the flour if that will make a difference [and it might!]

Can anyone point me in a direction? Some good recipes? a great baking book?

Thank you so much - and FWIW, I'm not planning to leave the planet any time soon :)
