Rosella Jam Mock Danishes

Hey Fam! I recently made Rosella Jam, and wanted to put it to good use. If you’re not feeling ambitious enough to make your own, I definitely understand. Just purchase some delicious rosella jam online! I found this really great recipe for mock danish dough, courtesy of GretchensBakery. I take no credit for this dough recipe, but it is easy to work with. So please visit her blog and support! I’m a big fan of her blog and YouTube channel. I haven’t made danishes since my catering courses in culinary school, which was MANY moons ago, and although my danishes do not look nearly as stunning as Gretchens, they’re still yummy. I will be making more this week for a really fun post. I need the pastry practice. 

Rosella Jam Mock Danishes

This dough is very versatile too. No butter block required, and you could use it for cinnamon rolls, monkey bread, I still feel weird saying that, and other yeast yummy pastries. I will be using this recipe again in the near future as I have a few really cool ideas for this blog and my own YouTube channel. Thank you, Gretchen!
