I know I always talk about what an amazing baker my Mom is, but she really is the best! To this day, most of my favorite desserts are recipes she has been making my entire life.ย This Chocolate Chip Danish is one of her classics that I requested she make ALL the time when I was young. We baked it together last week and it was so special because my son got to help us too. With Easter around the corner, I figured this was a perfect time to post this recipe, which doubles as dessert and breakfast.



  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp water


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs


  • 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

To make the crust, add the flour, butter and water to the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl if using a handheld mixer). Mix until it forms a ball.ย Divide the dough ball into two parts. Then using your hands, press each part into a 12 x 4 inch rectangle on a nonstick baking sheet.

To make the filling, melt the butter in a medium saucepan with 1 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove from heat. Quickly add in the almond extract and flour and mix vigorously until the mixture forms a ball. Then add the eggs and mix until everything is combined and the mixture becomes smooth. Spread half the topping over each rectangle.

Place in the oven and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes until the top is golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and water in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour the glaze over each danish and use a rubber spatula to help spread it out. Then top with mini chocolate chips.
