A yummy treat #lowcarb

This recipe is very old and comes from back in the days of Low Carb mailing lists. I have no idea of the origin.

*Some people add a tablespoon of fiber supplement to their Danish to give it a more “bready” texture. If you do this, you MUST include the the fiber supplement carbs.
