White Chocolate Cheese Danish

Cheese DanishesIngredients
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup DCD White Chocolate Martini Mix
½ tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2 puff pastry sheet, thawed
1 egg
Your favorite fruit jam/jelly

Directions

  1. Whisk together cream cheese, DCD White Chocolate Martini Mix, vanilla, and salt to form filling. Note: it will look “broken” at first, just keep whisking until it comes together
  2. On a floured surface, roll pastry to 12×9 inches and cut into six equal sized pieces. Do the same for the second pastry sheet.
  3. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Using a fork, dock (poke holes) the middle of each piece of puff pastry leaving a ¾ inch un-docked boarder. (see photo)
  4. Whisk egg with 1 tsp water to form an egg wash; brush un-docked boarder with egg wash.
  5. Place 1 Tablespoon of filling into middle of puff pastry, spread with spoon up to the egg wash boarder. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 mins.
  6. While danish is chilling, heat oven to 425 degrees.
  7. Bake danish until golden brown; about 14-16 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven, cool for 5 minutes, dust with powdered sugar, and put a small scoop of your favorite jam/jelly into the middle.

Chef Tips

  • Mix 1/3 cup DCD White Chocolate Martini Mix with ¾ cup Dove Buttercream Frosting Mix to form a glaze; drizzle on pastry.
  • For an extra decadent pastry, sprinkle chopped Dove White Chocolate onto a still warm pastry!
  • Don’t forget to top your danish with chopped fresh seasonal fruit!
  • Saving a danish for the next day? Reheat the pastry in a 350 degree oven for 3-5 minutes to get back that flaky crust!
