Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thaw fruit if frozen. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • In a medium bowl beat cream cheese with a mixer on medium until smooth. Beat in sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla. In a small bowl stir together fruit and preserves.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll one puff pastry sheet into a 10 1/2-inch square. (Keep remaining sheet chilled.) Cut into nine 3 1/2-inch squares; place on a baking sheet. Prick with a fork to within 1/2 inch of edges. Combine egg and 1 Tbsp. water; brush over squares. Spread each square with 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture; top with about 1 1/2 Tbsp. fruit mixture.

  • Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden. Remove; let cool on wire racks. Repeat with remaining puff pastry. Makes 18.
