Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
2 ¼ ounces yeast, active dry
1 cup milk
1 each eggs
1 ½ cups butter


Sift flour and mix with sugar and salt.

Beat well until smooth with a wooden spoon.

Roll out the dough on baking board to 1 finger thickness.

Spread small pieces of butter on ⅔ of the dough. The butter must have same consistency as the dough; if it is too soft it melts into the dough.

Fold together into three layers like folding a napkin, first the part without butter.

Roll out and fold again. Repeat three or four times.

Leave in cold place ½ hour.

This is the dough with which many different kinds of Danish pastry is made.

When pastry is shaped, place on baking sheet and leave in cold place to rise for 15 to 20 min., then brush with egg white and bake in a fast oven until golden brown.
