Factura con chocolate y Danish de manzana - Chocolate Pastries and Apple Danish

I recently posted how to make medialunas and vigilantes.  Lot's of people wrote in asking for the 'chocolate' version they have eaten when they have been in Argentina...  So here it is!  I've also added the recipe for Apple danish which is one of the classic pastries you will also find on Argentine dessert menus!

Follow the same instructions for making the pastry that is in this post.

Facturas de Chocolate



Roll out the dough.  Cut into a rectangle, about 3mm thick.  Take a bar of chocolate and place in the centre of the rectangle.  Make sure no part of the chocolate is sitting outside of the dough (leave a good 3mm on all sides). Brush dough on the inside with melted butter.  Roll the chocolate bar 2 to 3 times and cut any left over dough and set aside.  Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle some sugar on top.  Bake in an oven on high heat (about 200 degrees) for 20mins or until pastry is cooked.  Take out of the oven and let it cool...then you can consume all the chocolatey goodness!!!

Apple Danish



Pastry:
Follow the same instructions for making the pastry that is in this post.

To cook apple for danish:
Coat the pan with butter. Placed sliced, peeled apples in the pan and cook until crisp.


Cut the pastry into a rectangle 3mm thick.  Cut into strips and then into squares 8x8cm.

Take a square.  Cut diagonally from all the corners to the centre - do not cut all the way to the centre - leave a diameter of 1cm or so.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.  Take a cooked green apple, cut into strips.  Place in the centre.  Take the ends and bring to the centre joining in the middle.  Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar again.  Place one more strip of apple in the centre.

Bake in an oven on high heat (about 200 degrees) for 20mins or until pastry is cooked.  Take out of the oven and let it cool...then consume with abandon!

Cocinar, comer and ser feliz!
