How Do I Make The Processor Danish With Schnecken Filling And Syrup?

Asked by Kate000. Answered on 18th December 2021

Full question

I'd like to make the processor Danish pastries using the filling and syrup from the Schnecken recipe, as suggested in How to be a Domestic Goddess. I'm not sure how to cook the pastries in the syrup, or do I pour the syrup on as a glaze after cooking the pastries?

Our answer

Nigella's recipe for Schnecken (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS), a type of swirled cinnamon roll, suggests a variation using the Processor Danish Pastry dough (also from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS). Although the book suggests using a half quantity of the dough, we suspect that a full quantity of the dough would make best use of the Schnecken filling.

The suggestion means that the Danish dough can be substituted for the Schnecken dough and rolled out into a rectangle, spread with cinnamon butter and then rolled up, cut into swirled circles and baked in the muffin tin, where the syrup and walnuts are already in the base of the muffiin pan cups. Unfortunately, we suspect that if you tried to use the cinnamon butter to fill pastries in the style of the Almond Danish then it may melt and run out too much during baking.
