How To Make Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish With Claire Saffitz | Dessert Person
A treat for me as a kid was walking from my house to the St. Louis Bread Company, a family-owned, fast-casual bakery and cafe (later sold and turned into the Panera chain), and buying a snack from the pastry case. I would often get one of their cherry or blueberry and cheese danishes. It felt like a very fancy treat then, and that’s still how danishes feel to me now. Watch and follow along as Claire Saffitz walks you through her Kouign-amann recipe and creates delicious Blueberry Cream Cheese Danishes.

  • I like this recipe. But what would happen if I just used store bought puff pastry, rolled it out, cut in squares and then use the cream cheese and blueberry mixture, as presented? Would I need to adjust the puff pastry, with maybe a sprinkling of sugar? Thanks

  • Are the measurements wrong in the description? 250gr of sugar seems a bit too much
