      Title: Danish dough
 Categories: Baker
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      1    Envelope dry yeast
    3/4 c  Milk, warm (about 110
           Degrees )
      1    Egg, lightly beaten
    1/4 c  Sugar
      1 ts Salt
      1 ts Vanilla extract
  2 1/2 c  All purpose flour
    1/2 lb (2 sticks) unsalted butter,
           Cold
 
  In a large bowl sprinkle the yeast over the milk.  Let sit for about 5
  minutes.  Add the egg, sugar, salt and vanilla.  Whisk gently to
  combine. Set aside. Quarter each stick of butter and cut into 9 or 10
  pieces. Toss the diced butter and flour together in a medium bowl.
  (Optional method) Put the flour in the bowl of a food processor. Cut
  each stick of butter into 1/4 inch slices and mix into the flour.
  Pulse machine 8 to 10 times, just to cut the pieces of butter into
  1/2 inch pieces. If there are any larger pieces, break them with your
  fingers. Add the flour and butter mixture to the wet ingredients and
  fold with a rubber spatula until the flour is completely moistened.
  Transfer the dough to a smaller bowl, cover with plastic wrap and
  refrigerate overnight. Remove the dough from the refrigerator.  On a
  heavily floured surface, pat it into a rectangle about 8 x 6 inches,
  and then roll it into a larger rectangle about 14 x 24 inches.  Brush
  off any excess flour and fold both edges in so that they meet in the
  center. If the dough is sticking underneath, release it with a long
  flexible metal palate knife. Dusting off any excess flour and fold
  the dough in half when the edges meet. This is called a "book or
  4-fold". Rotate the rectangle of dough 1/4 turn on the table.  This
  is called a "turn".  Roll into a rectangle measuring about 24 x 12
  inches, loosening the dough underneath with a the metal spatula,
  reflouring as necessary. Brush off any excess flour and give it
  another book fold. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for 20
  to 30 minutes. Remove the dough from the fridge and repeat this
  process two more times, rolling the dough out each time to 12 x 24
  inches. There are 4 book folds in all. After the final turn, shape
  the package into a rectangle measuring about 9 x 6 inches. Brush off
  any excess flour, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 2 days or
  freeze for up to one month. Yield: 2 pounds of dough
