Exquisite Strawberry Puff Pastry Delight with a Creamy Cheesecake Filling
- 1 sheet Puff Pastry
- 1 cup ripe strawberries
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- 8-ounce package of cream cheese
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp heavy cream
- 1 cup fresh sliced strawberries
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- Start by unfolding the puff pastry sheet onto a lightly floured cutting board. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 strips along the fold marks. Then, cut each strip in half to create 6 rectangles. Place each pastry rectangle onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the puff pastries turn a beautiful golden brown. Once done, remove from the oven and let them cool completely on a baking rack. Set them aside.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine ripe strawberries, granulated sugar, and lemon juice. Mash the mixture with a masher until the strawberries soften and the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it boil for about 5 minutes or until it thickens. Remove the pan from heat and allow it to cool completely.
- In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese, granulated sugar, and cream together until smooth, which takes about 3 minutes using a hand mixer. Set this mixture aside.
- Carefully split each pastry into 2 layers, creating a total of 12 layers. Evenly distribute the creamy cheesecake mixture onto the bottom layers and spread it with a knife. Place a layer of freshly sliced strawberries on top of the cream cheese mixture. Follow this with the flavorful strawberry filling. Finish by topping it with the upper puff pastry layer. To enhance the visual appeal, sprinkle a dash of powdered sugar on top of the puff pastry.
- It’s time to indulge in this delectable treat! Enjoy your Strawberry Puff Pastry Delight.”
