cherry almond danish braid

I’m beginning to think I have a serious weakness for breakfast pastries. If I indulged at breakfast as often as I’d like to…well, let’s just say restraint can be a good thing.

This sweet yeasted bread is a bit of a cheat on the classic laminated Danish pastry, but every bit as delicious thanks to the tender cream cheese dough that rolls out like a dream.

Cherry Almond Danish Braid | Tutti DolciFresh Bing cherries take the spotlight here, topping a layer of almond paste for one irresistible filling. Drizzled with sweet Amaretto glaze, the only accompaniment this braid needs is freshly brewed coffee.
