Scandanavian Danish Pastry
Yield: 3 pastries

4 to 6 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 sticks butter or margarine
3 eggs
1 cup warm milk
2 Tbsp sugar
1 pkg yeast
1 tsp vanilla

3 jars thick preserves or jam
Chopped nuts
Powdered sugar

Sift 4 cups of flour and salt into the bowl. Cut in butter as for
pie dough to, make coarse crumbs. Dissolve yeast in warm milk with
sugar until foamy. Add to flour mixture with slightly beaten eggs
and mix vigorously with wooden spoon. Add additional flour to make
a soft dough and knead smooth and elastic. Cover in a bowl and
refrigerate overnight (must). Divide dough into 3 parts. Roll each
part on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle. Spread
a jar of preserves of choice over dough. Sprinkle with desired
amount of chopped nuts. Bring up both long sides towards the
center, overlapping a bit. Pinch or tuck under side edges. No need
to rise double. Place on greased baking sheets and bake in a 350
oven 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Glaze or dust with powder sugar.
Cool and cut into slices.

Note: this is an extremely delicious pastry with a wonderful texture.
A variety of fillings could be used instead of the preserves.
However this is not a true Danish dough. Remember this dough does
not use the butter bar and "turns" and chilling as would a true
Danish technique.
