Strawberry Cream Cheese Breakfast Pastries – A simplified, perfectly tasty pastry recipe! Made with a flaky layer of store-bought puff pastry, a creamy, tangy sweetened cream cheese filling and fresh strawberry topping.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8.6 oz) sheet puff pastry

  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp strawberry jam

  • 1 drop red food coloring (or use beet powder) optional

  • 2/3 cup very small diced strawberries

  • 1 large egg whisked with 1 Tbsp water

  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

  • Thaw puff pastry according to directions on package and halfway through thawing preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  • While puff pastry is thawing, in a small bowl and using a rubber spatula, mix together cream cheese, jam and food coloring while pressing mixture along bottom and sides of bowl to smooth large lumps.
  • Transfer to refrigerator until ready to use (so it’s not runny, you can flash chill in freezer if you prepared this near the end of the pastry thawing).
  • Cut pastry into heart shapes using a 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter (space them as close together as possible so you can get as many as you can out of the sheet).
  • Transfer hearts to a baking sheet lined with a silicone liner or parchment paper, spacing 1 1/2-inches apart.
  • Using a sharp pairing knife, lightly score a heart inside of each cut-out heart coming about 1/3-inch from the edge, without cutting entirely through bottom of the dough.
  • Add 1 tsp of the cream cheese mixture to center of each heart then spread outward without covering the 1/3-inch edge.
  • Add strawberries over cream cheese layer, again without covering the edge. Using your fingertip brush the 1/3-inch edge with egg/water mixture.
  • Bake in preheated oven 14 – 15 minutes until edges are golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack then dust with powdered sugar. Serve the day they are prepared.
