foamy.Add to flour mixture with slightly beaten eggs and mix vigorously
with wooden spoon.Add additional flour to make a soft dough and knead
smooth and elastic.Cover in a bowl and refrigerate overnight ( must
).Divide dough into 3 parts. Roll each part on a lightly floured surface
into a large rectangle.Spread a jar of preserves of choice over
dough.Sprinkle with desried amount of chopped nuts.Bring up both long sides
towards the center, overlapping a bit. Pinch or tuck under side edges. No
need to rise double. Place on greased baking sheets and bake in a 350 oven
20 to 25 minutes until golden.Glaze or dust with powder sugar.Cool and cut

texture. A variety of fillings could be used instead of the preserves.
However this is not a true Danish dough. Remember this dough does not use
the butter bar and "turns" and chilling as would a true danish technique.
