Sometimes I make poor decisions. Such as wine tasting on an empty stomach and trying to bake bread afterwards. Not my best bread, let me tell you. Other times though, I make very good decisions, like making these danish pastries.

You see, I got a new textbook for school and I’m madly in love with it. My class this quarter is only using a few chapters of the hefty volume (mostly plated desserts), but I’m making my own way through the many, many bread chapters. Including the one on danish.

I then proceeded to eat only danish for three days straight. It’s very hard to resist all that butter, cream cheese filling, and homemade fig and vin santo jam. If these weren’t so time consuming to make, I would be in trouble.
