1. Prepare the Danish pastry. Follow the Recipe ID:485112 from Steps 2 to Step 7, and let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes.
2. Roll out the Step 1 dough to a 3 cm thickness with a rolling pin. Sprinkle with the instant coffee and granulated sugar mixture all over (except for where you'll be sealing the dough together). Apply a small amount of eggwash close to the seam.
3. Start rolling up from your side and rest on your work surface with the seam facing downwards. Cut into 8 even portions.
4. Make 5 deep cuts.
5. Place the dough into the tart cups which have been lightly greased with butter as illustrated in the picture. Let them proof for about 50 minutes at 30°C. Brush with the egg for glazing, and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes at 180°C.
6. When baked, remove from the cups. When cooled, draw lines with the chocolate writing pen.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had great success when I followed this recipe for Apple Raisin Danishes (Recipe ID: 485112) so I made danishes again.
I came up with this recipe because I thought coffee flavoured danishes might be good.
