Introduction:

Love those Danishes.  You can’t beat a warm fresh Danish straight out of the oven with a hot cup of coffee or an ice cold glass of milk. If you like it extra sweet, drizzle on that sweet glaze to give it that extra boost.  These are easy with some puff pastry in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.
