How to Choose

Full of flaky layers and featuring a decadent fruity filling, a Danish pastry should be an indulgent sweet treat. Unlike bread, Danish dough is layered with butter, then rolled thin. This happens a dizzying 24 times by re-folding and re-rolling the dough over and over with layers of creamy butter, and it is this process that results in the flaky layers we all know and love once a Danish pastry is baked. The dough is so complicated to prepare that only pastry chefs know how to do it. Le Bon Croissant expertly produces Danish dough but takes it one step further: we use the traditional methods that call for the dough to “rest” before the pastries are completed. This extra time allows flavours to develop and it’s why a Danish pastry tastes so rich and decadent. One Danish doesn’t have to fit all. The many options available to create your perfect Danish pastry are numerous, and most importantly, they all affect the price you pay. What kind of Danish should you purchase? Some questions to consider:

  • Does your end-customer want the premium all-butter experience? Or is your end-customer looking for a value-conscious choice?
  • Do you have skilled labour that can properly handle an unbaked Danish pastry through the thawing, proofing and baking steps? Or would you prefer a fully baked-then-frozen product that your staff need only display and sell or heat and serve?
  • Will the Danish pastries be part of a buffet? You may want a small pastry instead of a large.
  • What shape? Danish pastries come in a wide variety of shapes, and Le Bon Croissant is able to produce round, square, pinwheel-shaped, bow-tie and lattice.
