Blackberry Cream Cheese Puffed Pastry

The smell of cinnamon, blackberries, and pastry puffing away in the oven is the perfect way to wake up even the groggiest kid (or parent) after a long week. We had a dozen in the oven, and six people around the table, and they didn’t last past one sitting, but I am sure they would be great for an afternoon treat as well.

Whether you forage your blackberries, or use store bought ones, these little gems are packed with Vitamin C and bursting with flavour. Teamed up with cream cheese, and a bit of sugar, its a square of creamy, tart, and slightly crunchy heaven.

Blackberry & Cream Cheese Puffed Pastry Ingredients:

  • 12 oz fresh blackberries
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • puff pastry sheets, thawed, and cut into even squares
  • 1/3 cup honey cream cheese (recipe follows)

Honey Cream Cheese:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Toss together blackberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place puff pastry squares on baking sheet. Add a heaping 1 Tbsp of honey cream cheese in the center of each puff pastry square. Spread cream cheese, leaving about 1/2-inch border around the puff pastry square. Fold in about 1/4-inch of puff pastry all around the square. Add blackberries over cream cheese. Gently butter the exposed edges of puff pastry.

  3.  Bake for 30-35 minutes until puff pastry edges has risen and puff pastry is golden brown in the color. Remove from oven and let pastries cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle cinnamon over pastries before serving. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
