Total time: 
Serves: 10
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 cups fresh berries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons milk
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the cream cheese until soft and fluffy.
  3. Add white sugar, lemon juice and zest and whip until well blended and smooth.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, unfold a sheet of puff pastry and cut into circles using a round cookie cutter. A glass or jar would also work.
  5. Use a smaller cookie cutter or glass to create an indent around the edge, then prick the center several times with a fork.
  6. Spread a dollop of cream cheese mixture in the center of each puff pastry round.
  7. Top with berries to your heart’s content.
  8. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry. (I was able to get 5 pastries per sheet of puff pastry based on the size of my cookie cutter.)
  9. Beat the egg with a bit of water, then brush the edges of each pastry with egg wash.
  10. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  11. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until golden.
  12. Once baked, remove from the oven and then transfer pastries to a wire cooling rack.
  13. While they cool a bit, sift powdered sugar into a mixing bowl. Add milk slowly, whisking until smooth.
  14. Drizzle over each pastry then serve!
