A classic Danish snitter is often made with a raspberry filling but I decided to finally use the jar of sour cherries that have been mocking me in my cupboard. Those not familiar with this particular dessert have probably eaten a Pop Tart in their day, this is essentially a fancy Pop Tart and has a ton of potential for tinkering.
Even if you don't have cherries or roses on hand, thats okay. Any type of frozen or fresh fruit works here. The pastry itself is slightly sweet but with the addition of royal icing (honestly not my favorite and I personally make it without it most days) it can get sweeeeet. So in making our own jammy filling from fresh ingredients it allows us to control how sweet it can get. This does need a bit of quick prep but its mostly cooling down and allowing the pastry dough to set. Substitutions will be found at the bottom.
