Ingredients For puff pastries dessert

  • 8 oz
    philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 jar
    strawberry jam or jelly
  • 1
  • 1 Tbsp
  • 1 pkg
    puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 1 tsp

How To Make puff pastries dessert

  • 1
    Turn oven on at 425 degrees.
  • 2
    open up puff pastry and make sure its not too thawed out, cut into 9 even squares, I use my pizza cutter, then poke holes into the puff pastry with a fork all over.
  • 3
    beat egg and put aside
  • 4
    pour a little water in a small bowl and put aside
  • 5
    add the sugar and vanilla into the cream cheese and mix together and put aside
  • 6
    separate puff pastry squares and with a small spoon put a small amount of the cream cheese mixture into each puff pastry square and poke a hole into the cream cheese to make room for the jam.
  • 7
    take a spoonful of the jam and put into the middle of the cream cheese.
  • 8
    take the opposite ends of the puff pastry and twist together and seal with a little water or egg wash so it won't open while baking. So continue to put a little twist in each square.
  • 9
    I use parchment paper so they won't stick on the baking sheet. Lay out all the puff pastries a good inch or inch in a half a part on baking sheet.
  • 10
    brush all the pastries with the egg wash lightly and stick into the oven for 15-20 minutes until they are lightly brown and puffed up.
