Additional Information

Ingredients

1 sheet PC Butter Puff Pastry , thawed (half a 450 g pkg)
4 tsp (20 mL) PC Over 50% Fruit Pure Jam - Wild Blueberry & Concord Grape
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup (50 mL) cream cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Unroll pastry, using parchment paper it was rolled in to line baking sheet.
  2. Cut puff pastry in half crosswise, then in half lengthwise to create four squares. Place pastry squares on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush each square lightly with beaten egg. Cut cream cheese into four slices; place one slice in centre of each pastry square. Top each slice of cream cheese with 1 tsp (5 mL) jam. Loosely draw corners of puff pastry almost to the centre of the square, forming square parcels with some filling still visible at the centre. Lightly brush top of pastry with beaten egg.
  3. Bake in centre of oven for 13 to 15 minutes or until pastry is deep brown and filling is bubbly.
