Cherry Cheese Danish Recipe
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time12 minutes
17.3 ounces frozen puff pastry 1 box, 2 sheets
6 ounces cream cheese
⅓ cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract or 3 tablespoons of bourbon
21 ounces cherry pie filling
powdered sugar for dusting on top
Preheat oven to 400°.
Lay out one roll of puff pastry and cut it in half and then in half again. Making 4 even squares.
Leaving a ½ centimeter edge, start ½ centimeter in from the corner and cut parallel to one side not quite to the middle. Start from where you cut at the corner and make an L going down the other side but not all the way to the middle. Do this on each corner. (see photo for example)
Repeat on all 4 squares.
Mix cream cheese, sugar and Bourbon in a bowl. Put one scant teaspoon in the middle of each corner of the pastry.
Place one cherry and small amount of filling on each cream cheese corner.
Dip finger in water and dampen each corner to help them stick.
Fold each cut corner piece into the middle making sure to press slightly so it will hold. Put one cherry in the middle.
Repeat with second roll of pastry.
Bake for 12 min.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
