Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Puff Pastry for Mom (Guest Post)

Two of my girls made me breakfast in bed yesterday, and oldest daughter offered to share her recipe for the yummy puff pastry creation she served. 




Making a delicious Mother's Day breakfast doesn't have to be hard! All you need is some puff pastry dough, cream cheese, and fresh berries, and you'll be just fine. Chop, crush, blend, or otherwise smash up the berries and combine them with the cream cheese--you should have about equal amounts of cream cheese and berries in your mix. Add some sugar to taste.

Roll out your puff pastry dough, and then cut out circles from the dough. Put the circles on a cookie sheet, and spoon the cream cheese mixture into the middle of the circles. Make sure the amount isn't too generous--you need to be able to close the pastry! Fold the pastry over and pinch the edges shut, then spread an egg wash over the top of the pastry. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees until the top is golden brown and cracked. Serve hot with sauce and (if desired) spoon extra berry cream cheese over the top.
Sauce: Boil some sugar in water, add blended pineapple and orange marmalade.

Thanks for my children.

  7. Amara and I may have to try this together. This is really simple enough that she could handle it all -- with just the right amount of Grandma supervision.
