Fresh Peach Danish Pastries

Updated: Aug 13

Everyone knows Danish pastries are the quintessential breakfast food. Paired with fresh peach slices, a creamy honey vanilla mascarpone filling, toasted slivered almonds, and a buttery puff pastry, these Danish pastries are perfect for breakfast or brunch with family or friends. With a flaky crust, rich filling, juicy fruit, and nutty topping, this easy recipe is a beautiful addition to any menu and is a great way to use fresh summer peaches. Nothing could go wrong on a day that starts with these Danish pastries.


These peaches were from our peach tree, so the peaches were very small. The recipe is written for standard sized peaches from a grocery store.






Makes 6 Danish pastries


Ingredients

Fresh Peach Danish

  • 6 Tbsp mascarpone cheese

  • 2 Tbsp honey

  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 24 fresh peach slices

  • ¼ cup slivered almonds

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 Tbsp water


Directions

Fresh Peach Danish

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the mascarpone, honey, and vanilla until thoroughly combined.

  3. Gently unfold the thawed puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out into a 10"x13" rectangle about ⅛-inch thick. Then cut the sheet into 6 equal rectangles.

  4. Lightly score each puff pastry piece by drawing a smaller rectangle within each piece. This creates an edge around the outside of each pastry that will puff up and hold the filling inside.

  5. Use a fork to prick the middle of each puff pastry piece several times to prevent it from rising.

  6. Spread about 1 tablespoon of the mascarpone mixture inside the smaller rectangle in the center of each puff pastry piece.

  7. Finish by topping the mascarpone mixture on each puff pastry piece with 4 fresh peach slices and sprinkle with slivered almonds.

  8. Make a simple egg wash by beating the egg and water together, and then brush the egg wash around the outer edge of each puff pastry piece.

  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the pastries are set and golden brown.

  10. Allow the pastries to cool on wire racks to room temperature and enjoy!
