Again, thank you!

I order what I can't source locally, but from the U.S. it's not only expensive postage-wise, but I risk customs fees being levied and those can double the cost. Ordering from within the E.U. at least I don't have to worry about customs but, oddly enough, I haven't found a mailorder source for pecans here. Amazing how much they're missed!

I'll modify the shaping a bit to fit my customary approach (square folded into a triangle, enclosing the filling) unless you think having the cream open to the oven heat would be particularly beneficial in this case??
Ayrton, I have not tried this variation, in fact even though I love Danish pastries (you and I know it's almost impossible to buy them here from the Zaharoplasteio), I do not seem able to find time to do it at all. This recipe is pretty reliable and I think you should be adventurous and try this method. Baking the cream covered with apricots for 20 minutes in my humble opinion will not make it runny. Give it a try and let me know how they turn out, that is, if I have not beaten you to it!

Here's one I did ages ago. I believe the links are in there for the recipes. It had a nice berry and pastry cream filling. http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...tos-12697.html

Though the suggested chocolate filling sounds too good not to make!

Corazon, that looks just brilliant, love the shape. I wish I could get fresh berries, but will modify as best I can.

Robert, I'm sure your recipe is yummy as well, but Oreo's are a no-go!

Thanks again everybody!

Well ive never made it, only tasted. Been quite a while since i had it, but i as far i remember, the danish was filled with pecans and thickend maple syrup, it was almost a sort of jam, it also had chopped pecans on top and a maple glaze, was verrrry nice, not too sweet either! :o)
