Easy Cheese Danish

I love cheese danish, love it! But not the soggy ones from a hotel continental breakfast. So, I set out to create my own version at home.

  • Package puffed pastry, thawed (preferably Dufour)
  • 8 ounce container organic cream cheese
  • Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 egg & 1 egg yolk 
Preheat oven to 400.

Soften cream cheese in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Combine cream cheese, vanilla extract, egg yolk and sugar in bowl until well mixed.

Cut puff pastry into squares on a work surface.

Score each square with a knife to create a 1 inch border.

Spoon a scope of the filling into the center of each puff pastry square.

Mix 1 egg with 3 tablespoons water to create a basic egg wash. Brush on pastry crust.

Lay out puff pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes & serve!
