- Then, using a sharp knife, cut some slices off the log, 1,5cm thick.
- Sprinkle the brown sugar all over them.
- Lay them all on the baking sheet with partchment paper and bake them.
- Bake them for 20 minutes.
- Melt the remaining butter (50g)
- As soon as the Danish Pastries are baked, brush them with the melted butter.
