Ingredients

  • 1 sheet Frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 4 ounces Cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup Peach Preserves
  • ¼ cup Confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 12 slices Peach
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Water

Glaze

  • ½ cup Confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Milk
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl mix cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.
  • Unfold thawed puff pastry sheet and roll it out into a rectangle that is ¼ inch thick.
  • Cut into 6 equal rectangles.
  • Lightly score the puff pastry pieces by drawing a smaller rectangle within each one. This creates a "ring" around the outside of each piece that will puff up.
  • Use a fork to prick the middle of each puff pastry piece several times so it does not rise like the outer ring will.
  • Spread about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese in the center of each puff pastry.
  • Top with a thin layer of peach preserves.
  • Finish by topping peach preserves with 2 slices of fresh peach. 
  • Make a simple egg wash by mixing the egg and water and brush the egg wash around the outer edge of the puff pastry.
  • Place in a 400 F oven to bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While the pastry bakes make the glaze by mixing the confectioner’s sugar, milk, and vanilla together in a bowl.
  • Once the pastry is cooked and has cooled to room temperature drizzle the glaze over the pastries and enjoy!

Notes

Note: You can use frozen peaches too just make sure to thaw them and pat them dry before using.
