July is National Blueberry month and to celebrate I am sharing this mouthwatering Blueberry Cream Cheese Pastries. I thought about several desserts I could make and I decided to go with a Blueberry Cream Cheese Pastry. I love using puff pastry and find it is so easy to use – and it was perfect!
Blueberry Cream Cheese Pastries
Just make a few cuts in your puff pastry to make several squares and in no time you have a delicious pastry to serve for dessert or to enjoy for breakfast. These delicious pastries have a yummy layer of cream cheese, a handful of blueberries and after a quick trip in the oven they are drizzled with a sweet glaze. Yum!
There are a few items that I love to use when I am baking. Here are the ones I really love and think you should give a try!
1. Cookie Sheet – This cookie sheet is an absolute favorite of mine! It is nonstick and is really good quality for such an affordable price. Because of the nonstick coating cleanup is a breeze! I just love that it is dishwasher safe.
2. Parchment Paper – I personally love to bake my items on parchment paper. I am always in a hurry and anything that can help me is awesome! I love lining my cookie sheets with parchment paper – makes cleanup even easier! Even though my cookie sheets are easy to clean and dishwasher safe I rarely wash them because the parchment paper keeps them clean. I also like using parchment paper because I can easily transfer my cookies by just picking up the parchment paper off the cookie sheet.
3. Timer – A good timer is a must for me! Yes I do have a timer on my microwave and my oven but I am often in my office or outside with the kids so I don’t hear the timers in the kitchen. This timer I can take anywhere with me. It also has a magnet so it can easily store on my fridge. This timer has been through the ringer with me but is still doing great!
4. Cute Spatulas – We all have normal, regular, good spatulas in our kitchen. But do you know what makes baking more exciting? Cute spatulas, dishes, dishtowels, etc.! I just love making my kitchen cute with these!
- 1 package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
- 1 container blueberry cream cheese (room temperature so it spreads easy)
- 1 package of fresh or frozen blueberries

- Cut each pastry evenly into thirds horizontally and into thirds vertically so you have 9 squares per pastry sheet.
- Place the pastry squares on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Mix together the egg and water to make an egg wash. Brush each pastry square with the egg wash.
- At the center of each square spread a tablespoon of cream cheese.
- Add a handful of blueberries to the cream cheese and then sprinkle sugar over the pastry squares.
- Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- While pastries are baking make your glaze my mixing the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk together.
- Once the pastries are out of the oven let them cool for a few minutes then drizzle on your glaze.
