FOR THE DANISH PASTRY: In a large bowl, dissolve 2 Tablespoons (2 packages)active dry yeast in the warm water. Add a pinch of sugar and let stand 5 minutes, until the yeast foams. Stir in the remaining sugar, the egg yolks, and whipping cream, then set aside.
Perfect Danish pastry is so flaky and buttery that it melts in your mouth. And, it's the very best when it is hot out of the oven. Even though this is a short-cut method for making the pastry, the results are as close to perfection as one can find, except in Denmark, where Danish pastry is called "Vienna bread." Don't be intimidated with the idea of making your own pasty; the simple mixing method is similar to that of making a pie crust, the difference being the addition of yeast. I like to do as much as I can with the help of a food processor. Once mixed, the dough is chilled and becomes quite easy to handle. You can make the dough a day or two before you plan to bake.
