Fresh yellow peaches with cream cheese baked in puff pastries. These peaches ‘n cream puff pastries are the perfect dessert for late summer.
  • 1 puff pastry sheet, thawed but chilled
  • ½ cup softened cream cheese
  • 1 ½ -2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large yellow peach, sliced thinly
  • 1 beaten egg
  • More granulated sugar for topping
  • Mint for garnish
  1. Take a puff pastry sheet from the freezer and allow it to begin to thaw about 10 minutes before preparing the rest of the ingredients. The puff pastry sheet needs to thaw but should still remain chilled to allow it to puff up.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400F. Then line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese with the granulated sugar. Taste the cream cheese mixture and add more sugar to your taste.
  4. Cut the peach into thin slices.
  5. Once the puff pastry sheet has thawed, slice the sheet until 4 even squares.
  6. Spread the cream cheese in the center of the puff pastry squares. Place the slices of peach over the cream cheese mixture.
  7. Bring the opposite corners of the puff pastry sheet to the center.
  8. Now, brush the beaten egg over the puff pastry. The egg wash will help make the pastry golden brown. Sprinkle granulated sugar over the pastries especially over the peaches.
  9. Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes until the puff pastries are golden brown.
  10. Garnish the peaches ‘n cream puff pastries with granulated sugar if desired.
  11. Serve the puff pastries warm or cold.
