Description

Flakey puff pastries, filled with tart lemon custard, and sprinkled fresh blueberries. These blueberry lemon danishes are perfect for your next brunch!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry dough
  • 3/4 cup of blueberries
  • 3 Tbsp. vegan lemon curd 
  • aquafaba* for brushing dough
  • powdered sugar optional

Vegan Lemon Curd:

  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest 
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • tiny pinch of turmeric for color 
  • 1 tsp. gar gum or cornstarch 
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 tsp. lemon extract optional 

Instructions

  1. Make homemade vegan lemon curd and allow it to cool in the fridge for 2 hours. Or make homemade lemon curd and place in the freezer for 30-40 minutes while the dough unthaws.**
  2. Take the dough out of the freezer and place it on the counter while you make the vegan lemon curd for 30-40 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  4. While the dough is still cold but moldable, unfold it and roll over it twice with a rolling pin to even out creases. 
  5. Cut the dough into 6 even sections. 
  6. Place the dough sections on a parchment-lined baking sheet. In each section place 1 tsp. lemon curd and sprinkle with fresh blueberries. Make sure not to overfill, less is more here!
  7. Take two opposite corners of the rectangle and pinch them together in the middle to seal. 
  8. Brush the dough with aqaufaba liquid. 
  9. Bake the danishes for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy! 

Notes

* aquafaba is the water from the can of chickpeas. It’s optional here and helps brown the puff pastry dough because it acts like the “egg” wash.

** Using cold vegan lemon curd that is more firm will keep your pastries from getting soggy. Alternatively, you could use store-bought.
