Homemade Danishes

3/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 oz. dry active yeast
1/4 cup sugar
4 cups flour
1 egg yolk
2 sticks of butter

Combine water, milk, vanilla, and yeast. Beat with a mixer for three minutes. Sift flour and sugar, then add egg yolk. Melt both sticks of butter. Next, mix all of your components vigorously and allow to rise for half an hour. Roll your dough into cords and create spirals. Place these in your baking pans and allow to rise for half an hour.

Press indentations into the center of the spirals. Bake at 400 degrees until brown. Fill with your mother's delicious homemade strawberry jam.

Serves 2.

I think that the next time I make these, I'll double the sugar.
