Easy Cheesy Danish Recipe

danish

By Liz

Our Monday through Fridays are rush, rush, rush but thankfully come Saturday mornings, our vibe in the house is relaxed.  I treat the family with some sort of continental breakfast one day a week making it interesting and tasty for them, and really easy for me.

On this day of the week, our breakfast usually includes fresh coffee, juice and some sort of pastry that was either store bought or just really easy to make.  Here is the pastry I made this past, dreary, rainy Saturday.

I doubled this recipe for my large brood to make a total of 16 Danish, however, the recipe below is for 8 Danish.

3. Using a pair of disposable gloves and a paring knife, slice jalapeños vertically from bottom to top.
