Elevate Your Morning with Cream Cheese Danish Pastries with Berries


Cheese danishes are the kind of food that most people have categorized as a coffee shop or bakery food, but I’m going to show you how to whip these up in your own kitchen in just 20 minutes.

The pastry is flaky and butter and then stuffed with a cream cheese and berry mixture that’s bursting with the perfect sweet-tart combination. I chose blueberries and strawberries for this recipe, but you can use raspberries or whatever fyou want.

You will need these ingredients

Mix together cream cheese, sugar, an egg yolk, and vanilla. Beat the filling with a mixer on low speed until it’s smooth.

While you make your cream cheese filling, thaw out your puff pastry dough. Then roll it out and cut into 9 equal squares

Fold each corner of the cut square towards the center and gently press to adhere, creating a folded shape. Pick the center of each folded square with a fork.

Place a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each folded pastry square and press a couple of blueberries and strawberries into the cream.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk and then brush the outer edges of the pastries. Bake!

Enjoy for breakfast  or dessert!
