I had bought 2 boxes of puff pastry sheets since they were on sale. I 1st made blackberry danish, ( you can sub in the fresh blackberries instead of strawberries,) then I made the strawberry 1's because those were hubby's favorite. They're huge, so he loved them. I tend to like smaller pastries but these were so good, I ate the whole huge thing, lol. Serve warm.

How to Make Fresh strawberry & cheese danish pastries

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400. Line a large baking sheet w/ parchment paper. In medium bowl, combine sliced strawberries, cornstarch & sugar. Set aside after gently mixing.
  2. Unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry and smooth out the creases w/ your clean, slightly damp finger. Cut each sheet into 4 squares, fold over all 4 corners and slightly roll up the the edges not folded to make a octagon shape. Place on parchment paper.
  3. In medium bowl, cream the cream cheese and sugar, then beat in egg yolk and vanilla extract until smooth. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop up the cream cheese mix, place 1 scoop into the middle of each pastry " square." In small bowl, whisk egg & water, brush eggwash all around pastry edges only, avoiding filling. Spoon a good spoonful of strawberry mix over cream cheese mix into every pastry. Bake 15-20 mins, depending on your oven, but check @ 15 min mark since you don't want them to burn. Let cool. Place pastry squares on a plate, sprinkle generously w/ powdered sugar. Then do it all over again w/ the last pastry sheet.
