Apfel Puddingteilchen/Apple Pudding Danish

Pastry filled with vanilla pudding or custard then topped optional with fruit of choice I stayed with autumnal fruits like our local apples, really simple but oh so yummy treat that you could find in any German bakery. Again I had some trouble figuring out how to call this in English, did not have much luck so I am just calling it a danish.

There are so many delicious apple dessert that I would like to make, but it would just be to much to eat;) I am glad to be able to get back into baking and also eating normal again, after being sick for the last two weeks. Strong stomach pain kept my in bed or on the washroom for most of the time. I am feeling much better now, trying to get back into normal eating without getting stomach pain can be challenging. Also hope to get back to posting a recipe per week again.
