Serves: 8

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


Ingredients Puff Pastry Cream Cheese Hearts




·        1 sheet (about 8 oz or 225 grams) puff pastry, thawed

·        4 oz (or about 113 grams) cream cheese, softened

·        2 tablespoons granulated sugar

·        1 teaspoon vanilla extract

·        1/4 cup raspberry or strawberry jam

·        1 egg, beaten, for the egg wash

·        Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


Instructions for Puff Pastry Cream Cheese Hearts

·        Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

·        In a medium mixing bowl, blend the softened cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla extract, until smooth.

·        Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Using heart-shaped cookie cutters, cut out heart shapes. Alternatively make a stencil out of cardboard and use that to cut out the hearts.

·        Place the cut-out hearts onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each heart.

·        Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture onto each heart-shaped pastry, leaving a small border around the edges.

·        Spoon a dollop of raspberry or strawberry jam on top of the cream cheese filling on each pastry heart. Optionally swirl the jam with a toothpick or the back of a spoon to create a marble effect.

·        Brush the edges of the pastry with the beaten egg for a golden finish.

·        Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until the pastry turns golden brown.

·        Once baked, remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack.

·        Optionally, dust with powdered sugar before serving.






In conclusion, these heavenly puff pastry cream cheese hearts are a must-try for any dessert lover. Their flaky and buttery crust, along with the rich and creamy filling, make them irresistible.
