Apricot and Cream Cheese Pastry
This Apricot and Cream Cheese Pastry may sound unusual but I really love the combination. Along with the smooth cream cheese, I use vanilla extract and confectioners’ sugar to soften the flavor and spread it on top of individually cut squares of butter puff pastry and finally I add apricot jam, and canned apricot halves to each portion.
Delicate, rustic and delicious!

Steps to make Apricot and Cream Cheese Pastry
Preheat oven and prepare baking tray
Cut the thawed puff pastry into eight 4-inch squares then fold each square loosely in half, diagonally, so it is now a triangle. Next, use a very sharp knife and make two slices along the outside edge of the triangle, about ½-inch wide, without cutting right through the tip of the triangle. Open the triangle and gently lift the right side strip of pastry over to the left, placing it on the square of pastry. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the left side strip, folding over to the right side so that the pastry will be a frame around the filling.
