Very probably, I didn't follow the directions to a "T". I'm prone to glance at directions and them promptly ignore them...but with gluten free baking, I'm not nearly so adventurous, and I do TRY to follow the instructions. Alas, there isn't one iota of flakiness to them. Tender and enjoyable, yes. Flaky and pastry-like, no.
Just don't go telling every Dane you know that I butchered their signature dish.
Also, here's a shout out to those who really can do the dance of the Danish, those dear ones who make the cheese danishes at Camp Moriah possible. WOW. I'm all the more impressed. Go you.
