Lemon Cream Cheese Danish

Cream cheese and lemon are one of my favorite combinations.  Add in puff pastry and it is scrumptious. This dessert was super easy to make.  I used a frozen pastry puff sheet and a can of Lemon Pie filling.  You could make this danish using any pie filing your heart desires.  Cherry and cream cheese sound like a good match too.

one of the pastries I rolled the edges and the other I left flat.  The only difference when they were done baking was the rolled edges was a little puffier than the flat edges.

Lemon Cream Cheese Danish

1 sheet Puff Pastry
1 can Lemon Pie filing ( I used half of 22oz can)
1  8 ounce cream cheese
1/2 C sugar
1 egg
1T vanilla

Preheat oven to 415 degrees

Sit frozen pastry out to thaw (about 20 minutes)

After thawed open up pastry and cut in half.  Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Mix together the cream cheese, egg, vanilla and sugar until smooth.

Take the pie filling and put a strip of filling down the center of each puff pastry.

On the outsides of the lemon filling place a strip of cream cheese filling on each side.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until puff pastry is golden brown.
