A Danish pastry, sometimes abbreviated Danish especially in the United States, is a viennoiserie pastry, of Viennese origin, which has become a specialty of Denmark and neighboring Scandinavian countries. Certain other countries, like the United States, commonly consume Danish pastries. It is called wienerbrød in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Norway and Sweden. It is referred to as facturas in some Spanish speaking countries. In Vienna, the Danish is referred to as "Plundergebäck" or "Golatschen". Like other viennoiserie pastries, such as croissants, danishes are made of laminated yeast-leavened doughs, creating a layered texture similar to a puff pastry.
