Blueberry Danish Puff

I was asked to contribute to the Coffee Hour after church on Easter Sunday.  My memory recalled many hectic Easter mornings of Easter Egg Hunts and getting children ready for church when I would have loved to have a morning treat that looked nice, went together quickly and tasted as good as this does.  This is a keeper!


1 box puff pastry {2 sheets}, thawed to room temperature
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
1-1/2 cups frozen blueberries


Frosting (I skipped this)

1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. Heavy Cream
1 tsp Almond Extract
3 shakes of salt
chopped almonds (optional)

Lay one whole pastry sheet onto a greased cookie sheet.Mix softened cream cheese, sugar, and almond extract together until well blended.  Spread on top of pastry sheet.
Top with frozen blueberries.
Cut second puff pastry sheet into 10 long strips.  Weave strips on top of blueberries.
Bake at 375 F for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown.
I sprinkled mine with powdered sugar.  The recipe states: you can pipe the frosting on for a fancy effect and sprinkle with chopped almonds if desired.
