Danish pastries with strawberry and cream cheese filling

Who would mind getting up early to this glorious, sweet and creamy and crunchy breakfast? Not us :).And that's it, we'll keep this one short and just get to the recipe already :) 

Ingredients (makes about 7-8 pastries):

  • 2 275 g puff pastry sheets
  • 500 g strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • 180 g cream cheese (like Philadelphia)
  • 100 g powder sugar
  • 2 eggs (or 1 egg and one yolk)

First, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Put the cheeses, sugar and vanilla in one bowl. Add the egg yolk and put the other egg and, optionally, the remaining egg white to a separate bowl.

Mix the cheese filling very well until even. Lightly beat the egg. Cut the strawberries into chunks:

Cut wide strips from the puff pastry sheets. Cut fringes on the two sides of each, lengthwise. Spread some cheese filling on the middle of each, then top with strawberries. Cover with the fringes, from the two sides alternatively, just like in the picture below:

Brush the pastries with the egg-wash:

Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown. If by any chance they seem still raw on the bottom (like it happened to us), just turn them upside down and bake for some 20 minutes more until they're golden brown on that side as well:

They're done, dig in.


  1. Oh, ce bine arata! Trebuie sa incerc si eu, neaparat! Cred ca este o combinatie foarte buna, mascarpone si capsuni, mmmmm :-)

  2. A fost bun intr-adevar. Daca incerci, sa ne spui cum a iesit. Si "La multi ani" pentru azi, 1 decembrie! :)
