My husband says these are the closest thing to 'real' Danish he has had since going gluten-free five years ago. We like raspberry jam, but you could also try pie filling in the middles.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the pancake mix, butter, and sugar; mix until crumbly. Stir in 2/3 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and mix until fully incorporated. The dough will be sticky.
  3. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheet, spacing the dough about 2 inches apart. With the back of a teaspoon, make a shallow indentation in the center of each dough ball. Fill the centers with a teaspoon of jam.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the pastries to cool.
  5. Combine the confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons of milk, vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and mix until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the Danish.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

For those that have reviewed this recipe and said that it had a chalky taste, it's your GF pancake mix. I usually use Pamela's pancake mix and it doesn't have the chalky taste.

These are REALLY good! I used Gluten Free Bisquick and made them vegan by using vanilla almond milk. I added a little more almond milk than called for to make it more workable. They turned out really good! Definitely cured my pastry cravings I've had since going gluten free and since I'm vegan! LOVE THESE!!!

yummy. made them with Pamela's. be careful to make shallow indentation because the jam will bake through the bottom of the danish.
