This is my take in the very traditional Puerto Rican "quesitos." They remind me of my island and my childhood. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.

Oh yum! As you bite into the puff pastry, there's a lovely crunch from the buttery, flaky crust. The honey-vanilla cream cheese filling is smooth and creamy. It has a nice tang from the cream cheese, but the honey adds a hint of sweetness. The sprinkled sugar on top just adds to the sweetness. These are simple, yet delicious.

How to Make Cream Cheese and Honey Turnovers

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven at 350° and grease two cookie sheets. Put them aside.
  2. Mix the room temp cream cheese, honey and vanilla extract. You can do it by hand with a wooden spoon or mix it in the electric mixer until everything is incorporated.
  3. Cut each puff pastry sheets in either 9 small squares or 6 big squares.
  4. Put 1 or 2 Tbsp of the filling per square of puff pastry. To close them, in a diamond like position take each corner and put them one on top the other and press to secure.
  5. Now put all turnovers on the pre-greased cookie sheets. Beat the egg and brush each turnover well. This is going to seal each turnover. You can sprinkle sugar on top before or after bake.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
