Rhubarb-Almond Danish Braid
Feeling ambitious? Make this "rough puff" pastry for a true from-scratch Danish pastry braid. Be sure to use fresh rhubarb instead of frozen for the filling.
SHORTCUT DANISH BRAID
For faster prep, skip making the pastry from scratch and use one 14- to 17-ounce package puff pastry, preferably an all-butter brand such as Dufour, thawed following package directions. Prepare as directed, except omit the pastry ingredients and start with Step 3. In Step 5, if pastry comes in two sheets, lay them on top of one another, then roll; omit the rising. Bake 25 to 30 minutes.
