Ingredients

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed according to package directions
  • ounces  cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • tablespoons  granulated sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons  lemon juice
  • teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • cup  fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup blueberry jam
  • large egg

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Lay the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface, and cut each sheet into 6 equal-sized rectangles. You will have a total of 12 rectangles, about 4½x3 inches in size.
  • Arrange the puff pastries evenly onto the lined baking sheets, leaving about 1 inch between each pastry.
  • Use a fork to poke holes around the middle where you will be putting the filling Do not poke holes near the outside, creating a border. This allows the outside border to rise and puff up while the center stays low and holds the filling.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
  • Spread about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture onto the center of each puff pastry.
  • In a small bowl, mix together blueberry jam and the fresh blueberries.
  • Top the cream cheese mixture with the blueberry mixture.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg. Brush onto outside edges of pastry.
  • Bake for 15- 18 minutes, or until golden.
  • Remove from oven. Set aside to cool slightly.
