Ingredients

  • 1 pint of fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (to coat raspberries)
  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg + 1 teaspoon water
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar (for cream cheese filling)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 

  2. In a small bowl, add raspberries and 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar. Stir to coat and set aside. 

  3. Roll puff pastry sheet with a rolling pin to remove creases. Cut into six rectangles, about 3" x 4.5". With a knife, score a border around each puff pastry rectangle, about 3/4" in from the edges. This is where you will put your cream cheese filling. 

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water. Brush egg wash onto the borders of each pastry. 

  5. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Spread filling onto each pastry inside the scored border. Top cream cheese filling with sugared raspberries, top down.

  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until edges are browned. Remove and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before removing from baking sheet. Can be served warm or room temperature.
