Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 8 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoon confectioners powdered sugar (plus extra for sprinkling)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 large egg, beaten

Red Icing (optional)

  • ¼ cup confectioners powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • red food coloring

Instructions

  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 400°F. Combine the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar, mix well with a spatula or spoon, and set aside.

  • Spread out the puff pastry onto a floured surface. If it's not already in a rectangle, roll it out to about ¼" thick. Use the star cookie cutter to cut out as many stars as you can. Place the stars on the baking sheet before assembly, otherwise, they are hard to move. Score the top of each star with a sharp knife making an "x" on top. Be careful not to go all the way through the pastry.

  • Place about 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the middle of each star and use the back of a spoon to spread it out just before the edges. Place some blueberries in the middle of the stars (about 12 on each star). Use the pastry brush to brush the egg wash along the edges of the stars.

  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pastry becomes golden-brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

  • If you are going to add icing on top, place the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a bowl and whisk together. Add the food coloring and fully incorporate. When the pastries have cooled, drizzle the icing on top of each star and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Notes

  • These pastries are best when enjoyed immediately, but will last in the fridge for 1-2 days in a covered container.
