Super-Easy Fruit Danishes

Super-Easy Fruit Danishes

This is easily made with frozen fruit! The custard is also made in the microwave! The fruit is easily made even more flavorful with the honey, but it even looks wonderful!

Ingredients: 6 pieces

Frozen puff pastry
2 sheets
Beaten egg for the egg wash
1 egg's worth
Custard cream (Recipe ID: 1047776)
as needed
Frozen fruit
net 100 g
Honey
to taste
Nappage
as needed
Mint leaves (if you have them)
6 leaves
Powdered sugar
as needed

Steps

1. Defrost the puff pastry about an hour in advance by chilling in the refrigerator.
2. Defrost the amount of frozen fruit you will use. I like to use this kind.
3. Now, let's make the custard cream. Refer to Recipe ID: 1047776.
4. Put the two defrosted puff pastry together to make one large sheet.
5. Use your fingers to press the two sheets together, then roll with a rolling pin.
6. Cut into 8 cm squares. Use the dots on the puff pastry to guide you in cleanly cutting the squares.
7. Bring the lower right corner up to the upper left corner.
8. then cut about 8 mm off of the raw edges, leaving the tip intact like in the picture. Be very careful not to completely cut it off. I left about 1 cm intact.
9. Open it up and it should look like this.
10. Bring the lower left corner up to sit on top of the upper right corner of the square.
11. Bring the top right corner down to sit on top of the lower left corner like this.
12. Preheat the oven (follow instructions on the puff pastry package).
13. Brush with a beaten egg.
14. Top with a good amount of custard cream, then bake as directed on the puff pastry package.
15. While baking, thoroughly drain the defrosted fruit. Then, brush honey on the fruit.
16. Once baked, top the danishes with the fruits and nappage, garnish with mint, and enjoy!
