Cream Cheese Filling for Pastry

Prep Time: 5 Min

cream cheese granulated sugar yolk lemon juice pure vanilla extract


White Scribbled Underline


Beat the cream cheese with the sugar until creamy. Add the egg yolk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Beat again until combined.


Once the filling is mixed and incorporated it will look super creamy and like a thick cheesecake batter. And it’s ready to be used to fill your pastries before baking.


Here is one of the many ideas you can do. Cut two rectangles of thawed puff pastry the same size.


Cut a smaller rectangle in the center of one of the pieces, and top the other rectangle with the cut one. Fill the inside with the cream cheese mixture. You can top it with berries.


For a smaller shape such as these rectangles, I baked at 390ºF for about 15 minutes, until puffed up and golden brown.


01 Add 1-2 tbsp lemon zest to the filling.

02 Add 1/2 tsp espresso powder to the filling

03 Add 2 tbsp Nutella to the filling 

04 Add 2 tbsp Biscoff to the filling

05 Top the pastry with chocolate before baking

06 Top the pastry with berries before baking

Final Product: 

This makes a wonderful idea for a breakfast pastry, or to serve for afternoon tea time.
