Layered Puff Pastry with Cream Cheese & Cinnamon

This recipe will make a delicious dessert and a mouth-watering treat. It is really easy to make and will please everyone, except your nutritionist, but once in a while it is so good to indulge yourself!

What I love is the crunchiness of the brown sugar and cinnamon melted on top of the puff pastry, and the fact that the cream cheese mixture inside the two layers of puff pastry melts in your mouth.

With the following quantities, there was enough delicious pastry for eight people.
  • One puff pastry (32 centimeters diameter, 230 grams)*
  • 225 grams of soft cream cheese
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • One tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 25 grams of melted butter
  • One teaspoon of cinnamon ground
  • 40 grams of brown sugar

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 25 minutes

Start by pre-heating your oven at 175 C (350 F).

Lay down the puff pastry on top of some parchment paper.

In a bowl, mix the soft cream cheese, the white sugar, and the vanilla extract together.

Once the ingredients are well mixed ...

... add this mixture on top of one half of the puff pastry.

Fold the other half of the puff pastry on top of the cream cheese mixture.

Seal the two halves of the puff pastry together.

Melt the butter in a pan or in the microwave, and in a bowl, mix the brown sugar and the cinnamon.

Brush the top of the puff pastry, along with the seal parts, with the melted butter, and spread the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture on top of the butter.

Place your pastry in the oven for about 25 minutes.

Let it cool down a bit, cut in individual-portion squares, and serve.

Enjoy warm!

*Note: If you are making this recipe for more people, just use two puff pastries, and skip step two of the recipe. You will simply use one puff pastry for the bottom and one puff pastry for the top, and don't forget to also double the quantities for the other ingredients.
