whats cooking in my kitchen

So you remember a while back I said I wanted to share a recipe with you? I kinda teased you with it. Well then come time to post it I had deleted the pics before I put them on my computer? Yes? No. It was the Blueberry Puff Pastry. Jog your memory a bit?
Well my SIL came over today and I told her I would make it for her. This time I took the pic off the camera and put them on the computer!
Here they be

 Get yerself a box of puff pastry's at the store. Unless you feel ambitious and make the pastry yourself. I would be, but this time I was no ambitious, it's too hot.

 Then get some cream cheese, I mean who can live without cream cheese? I for one can not. Put some almond extract in it, and sugar. Then beat the snot out of it.

 Smear it on the raw pastry.

 Get some blueberries. I used frozen, that is all I had. Fresh would be amazing this time of year. And dump them on.

 Cut the other pastry into 10 slices and weave it on the top. I didn't this time, but it looks pretty when you take the time to do that. Then cook it.

Then tada!! All done and wonderful to eat. It's sweet, but not super sweet. Nice and light too, not a heavy pastry. Mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm.
Here's the recipe it ya want

1 box Puff Pastry sheets (2 in box)
1 8oz cream cheese softened
1/3 C sugar
1/2 t almond extract

11/2 C blueberries
Lay one sheet on your pan.
Beat cream cheese, almond, and sugar until well blended. Top with blueberries. Cut the second pastry into 10 slices, and weave them on the top.
Bale 375 25-30 min until golden brown

Frosting: If you want it (for this one I didn't put it on b/c I forgot)
1 C powdered sugar
3 T cream
1 t almond extract
Mix, and drizzle on top of pastry.

That's it.
Easy peasy.
Have a great night all!


  1. oh yum! I love puff pastry....just don't buy it very often. I would absolutely love this dessert, I am sure of that.

  2. Ooohhh, YUM!! That would be really good for breakfast! :)

  3. LOOKS DELISH! and PRETTY! Can I do this with BLACKBERRIES? or have you tried with other fruit? Looks easy enough! My hubby would love this with COFFEE!! From one sweetie to another...Roxie

    1. Roxie- I would imagine you could do it with any fruit. Go ahead and give it a try and let me know how it turns out. I'll give it a whirl myself!!
      It is good with coffee, iced for me though!
