Author's Notes

Makes 12 danishes.

You can make this recipe eggless by using heavy cream or aquafaba instead of egg wash. Keep in mind your pastry will be slightly paler.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking tray with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
step 2
Whisk Egg (1) with Water (1 tsp) to make an egg wash and set aside.
step 3
In a small bowl, whisk together Philadelphia Original Soft Cheese (1/4 cup), Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp), Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 Tbsp), 1/2 tsp of Lemon (1), and Vanilla Extract (1 tsp). Mix until smooth and spoon the mixture into a piping bag.
step 4
Cut the Puff Pastry (1 sheet) into 3.5-inch squares. Place each square onto the prepared baking tray 2 inches apart. Cut 90-degree angles (L shape) into the corners of each square. If the pastry is sticking or too loose, place the baking tray in the freezer for 3 minutes and try again.
step 5
Brush each pastry with egg wash and pull each edge of the square into the center. Place one berry from the Fresh Blueberry (1/3 cup) into the looped part of the puff pastry. Brush the pastry with the egg wash again.

step 6
Pipe about 1/2 Tbsp of the cream cheese filling onto the center of each pastry. Spoon Blueberry Jam (1/4 cup) on top of the cream cheese filling. Freeze the pastries for 5 minutes.
step 7
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown. Place on a rack to cool.
step 8
While the pastry is cooling, make the glaze. Whisk together Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/3 cup), Vanilla Extract (1/2 tsp), and Heavy Cream (2 1/2 Tbsp) until smooth.
step 9
Spoon the glaze into a piping bag and snip off a small hole. Drizzle the glaze on the danish while they are still slightly warm.
step 10
Let the pastry cool completely before enjoying them!
