Not exactly Danish.. (>_<)

This month DBs challenge was to make a Danish Pastry Braid.. This time the recipe comes from The Secrets of Baking by Sherry Yard, and can be found at one of the two host(ess)'s sites for this challenge - Kelly from Sass & Veracity, or Ben from What's Cooking?. Im not actually happy with the results, my dough was very sticky and delicate, so it was hard to work with, had to make the braids really fast since the dough melts really quick. My filling was English Custard & Treacle. And I also made some pineapple danish with my leftover dough.
*sigh*

English custard and treacle sounds delicious, and your end result looks fab - the treacle, being treacle, ran out a bit, but I reckon a little bit of stickiness makes it all the nicer. A very neat, lovely looking braid, and your pineapple danish pastries are very cute.

Wow, those cuts are fierce! Maybe the weather was affecting your dough? Mine was much drier than I thought it would be.
