How to make Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish
Follow this recipe to create a sweet and tangy treat that’s sure to impress your family and friends.
First, Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C). Cut the puff pastry into 11×11 cm squares, then make a square frame using a knife. Place the squares on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and poke the inside of the frame with a fork. This will help the pastry rise evenly and prevent it from puffing up too much. Set aside.
In a bowl, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and egg until well combined. Then add heavy cream and vanilla essence, and mix again until smooth. This will create a creamy and tangy filling for your pastry.
In a small bowl, beat an egg with milk, then brush the outer edge of the pastry frames with an egg wash mixture. This will help create a golden and shiny crust when baked.
Add 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture to each pastry frame, then top it with blueberries. The cream cheese mixture will help hold the blueberries in place and add extra sweetness and creaminess to the pastry.
Bake the Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. The pastry should be crispy and flaky, and the filling should be set and slightly golden. Once done, remove the pastry from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
Just before serving, dust the pastry with powdered sugar. This will add an extra touch of sweetness and make the pastry look even more tempting.
