I finally made Danishes after years of wanting to but too afraid to take the plunge! I'm happy to say that my fears were unfounded. These rose beautifully in the oven, were light and fluffy, and tasted great.
However, I did run into a couple of problems, which I will chalk up to inexperience. First, I couldn't get the dough to stay in the shapes that I *tried* to form. Second, the bottoms of the first batch burnt, while the tops were just barely done. I lowered the temp. to 425F for the next pan but the bottoms still began to darken before the tops were baked through, so I switched to "broil" for the last little bit, which worked well. My oven tends to run very hot so next time I will either bake them on a higher rack at 425F or lower the temp. all the way down to 400F.
