One of the goodies that they offered there were danishes with filling made from fruit preserves and vanilla custard. I have worked for some time to replicate this recipe at home, and I've gotten pretty close. Making a batch of these is a great way to celebrate a holiday. Since my sister sent us a jar of Peach Preserves in with the Harry & David fruit basket, it seemed very natural to use it in a batch of pastries.
