It’s time for December’s Secret Recipe Club post. It seems strange to be posting again since we just posted last week, but that was for our Holiday Themed reveal. So it’s even stranger (or is it a coincidence???) that this month’s blog assignment is the same blog I had for the Holiday Treats post – yep, Sid’s Sea Palm Cooking.
I at first thought I was going to make Sid’s Beef Stroganoff because I love Beef Stroganoff! (And I was looking through her blog when we were at the beach for the weekend and it was cold and stormy outside. I really wanted comfort food. I really wanted to make her Gyro recipe but it was an SRC recipe for Sid so that was a no no. Then I remembered that the last couple of SRC reveals I’ve made non-sweet recipes. (Gasp!) So I switched gears and went to her Sweet Stuff page and there it was.
Sid’s recipe for Danish Pastries was calling my name. They looked absolutely wonderful and this is something I haven’t tried to make before.
I’m not very good with yeast dough. I used to make bread all the time but then I stopped for some reason. (I’ll think more about that later.) Now when I make yeast dough, it’ doesn’t really turn out. I’ll keep trying because I’m definitely going to make these again. They were delicious! I took them to work and my co-workers said they were amazing.
I used the cream cheese filling in the recipe but I also put a plop of homemade raspberry jelly too. I think that helped make these delicious. Homemade jelly is so, so, so much better than anything you could buy in the store.
The icing is a must on these. It keeps the dough a little moist and adds a bit of sweetnedd to them.
