Fruit Filled Pastry Hearts

Recipe Ingredients

1 17.3-ounce package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets)
1/3 cup peach spreadable fruit or preserves
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 cup peeled and finely chopped peaches (about 2)
1 cup blueberries
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar

Recipe Directions

Thaw and unfold puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface. Using a floured, 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter or a sharp small knife and a heart pattern, cut pastry into about 45 heart shapes (do not reroll scraps). Place pastry hearts on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in a 375-degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool on a wire rack. If desired, store, tightly covered, at room temperature for up to 12 hours.

In a small saucepan combine spreadable fruit or preserves and lemon peel. Heat and stir until melted; cool. In a large mixing bowl combine peaches and blueberries. Add spread or preserves mixture and gently toss to combine; set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy.

To assemble pastries, with a serrated knife, cut pastry hearts in half horizontally. Spread each of the bottom halves with about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture. Top each with a spoonful of fruit mixture and a pastry top. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to four hours. Just before serving, lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Make-Ahead Tip

Bake pastry hearts. Cool and store tightly covered up to 12 hours ahead. Assemble pastries, cover and chill for up to four hours ahead.
