Easy Strawberry Danish @UpsideDownPear

So I was really craving a pastry the other day, but I didn’t want to go out and buy one. I mean…they’re expensive. Like $3 for one! I decided to try making them on my own….and by making them I mean buying premade pastry dough and adding some jam on top.

I didn’t really follow any recipe, but I saw images (most likely on Pinterest) of pastries being baked with blueberries in the center. So, I thought to myself, I’ll just bake some pastry dough with some jam in the center, and then ta dah a danish. You know what? It actually worked! And it worked well!! These are super easy, look super fancy, and are fun to eat.

These would be fun to make for a family breakfast or a party of some sort. Not to mention that they only take 20 minutes to make. I will say to make sure that you use a thick jam. I tried to use a fruit spread, and let’s just say that the filling melted before the dough had risen. It was a bit of a mess. I used a strawberry jam for these, and they turned out perfect. The jam melts, evens outs, and fills the shell perfectly. It’s simple and fun. I know you’ll love these as much as I do. I can’t wait to make more in different flavors!
