Key Lime Danish Pastries
6 1/4 cups To 6-3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups Sugar
2 packages Active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
1 cup Water
1 cup Milk
1/2 cup Margarine or butter
1 package 8-oz. cream cheese -- softened
1/2 teaspoon Lime peel -- finely shredded
3 tablespoons Lime juice
1/2 cup Powdered sugar -- sift before
1 teaspoon Margarine or butter -- melted
Combine 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, yeast, and salt;
set aside. In a saucepan combine water, milk, and 1/2 cup margarine.
Heat and stir just till warm (120°F to 130°F) and butter is almost melted.
Add to flour mixture; add egg. Beat for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat
for 3 mins. Stir in as much remaining flour as you can. Turn dough out
onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make
a moderately stiff dough that is elastic (6 to 8 mins. total). Shape
into a ball. Place in a greased bowl. Cover; let rise in warm place till
double (about 1 hr.). Punch down. Turn out onto a floured surface. Divide
in half. Cover; let rest for 10 mins.
For filling, combine cheese, peel, 2 tbsp juice, and 1/2 cup granulated
sugar. For icing, combine powdered sugar, 1 tbsp juice, and 1
tsp margarine. Set aside.
On a floured surface, roll each portion of dough into a 14"x9"
Top with 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
Roll up from a long side; seal seams. Cut into 12 slices; arrange
2" apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Make indentations; fill with
a scant tbsp of filling. Repeat with remaining dough, sugar, and filling.
Bake in a 375°F oven for 18 to 20 mins. or till golden. Let stand 2 mins.,
top with icing. Serve warm.
Note - freeze some of these buns, then reheat in the microwave.
