Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 2

    packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast

  • 1/2

    cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)

  • 6

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3

    cup sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons salt

  • 1

    cup cold butter, cubed

  • 1-1/2

    cups warm half-and-half cream (70° to 80°)

  • 6

    egg yolks

  • 1

    can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling

  • ICING:

  • 3

    cups confectioners' sugar

  • 2

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1/4

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Dash salt

  • 4 to 5

    tablespoons half-and-half cream

Directions

Directions In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Add yeast mixture, cream and egg yolks; stir until mixture forms a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Refrigerate, covered, overnight. Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into four portions. Roll each portion into an 18x4-in. rectangle; cut into 4x1-in. strips. Place two strips side by side; twist together. Shape into a ring and pinch ends together. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining strips. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 1/2-in.-deep indentation in the center of each Danish. Fill each with about 1 tablespoon pie filling. Bake 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. For icing, in a bowl, beat confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and enough cream to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over Danish. Yield: 3 dozen.
