Is it greedy to eat the WHOLE braid?!?!

O.K., I didn't eat the whole thing but I must admit, I was tempted to. This is a great recipe that I hope to make again.

I had my laptop nearby to the YouTube video on making Danish pastry. I wanted to make sure that I did the butter block was done correctly. I was very happy with the results (even if it wasn't a perfect square):

I followed the recipe almost exactly and used the Apple Filling but I added a cream cheese layer along with it. Since I didn't want to mess up on the actual braiding part, I totally did a knock off of Button's danish braid because it looked so pretty (thanks, Button!).

I'm very happy with how it turned out. I did have some butter leakage as I was rolling my dough out pretty vigorously and some apple spillage during baking but no harm done (thank goodness for Silpat). This was one of the tastiest things I've ever made and I'm very proud of myself. Thanks, Daring Bakers!
