Recipe: Strawberry Cream Cheese Pastry

Ready for a deliciously sweet summer pastry? This 5-ingredient recipe to make strawberry cream cheese pastries will be a definite hit for your friends and family when you invite them over for a get-together on a summer day! The steps may be a little bit tedious, but I promise, it’s well-worth it once you take a bite out of your pastry!


Ingredients (to make about 20 3×4 inch pastries):

  • firm, ripe red strawberries, chopped 13578663_3367853839104_233057731_n(more is better in case some are smaller than you want for presentation)
  • 8oz cream cheese at room temperature (you only need 6oz unless you want it really cheesy)
  • 6 tbsp of sugar (I used brown sugar, but I’m sure you can use white)
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract (feel free to use more if you love the vanilla flavor and don’t mind it extra sweet)
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 medium/large egg, beaten (this is used to glaze over the pastry so it has a nice golden-brown color after baking)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice your strawberries to the thickness of your preference **since this was my first time, some of mine came out looking weird since I used suuuuper small pieces haha**
  3. Beat 6oz of cream cheese FIRST (that was where I made my mistake -.- my mixture came out all clumpy since I added my sugar and vanilla altogether with my cream cheese and mixed)
  4. Add the sugar and vanilla after the cream cheese is a smooth texture, and again beat it until it’s smooooooth!
  5. Line baking sheets with parchment paper, and put the puff pastries on top; slice the pastries into however many pastries you need (I cut them so there were about 20)!
  6. Use a fork and poke holes on the edges (see picture).
  7. Beat the egg and then brush the egg on the edges of the pastries.
  8. Put the cream cheese mix in the center of each pastry, and lay strawberries on top in whatever pattern your heart desires 🙂
  9. Pop them in the oven for 15-17 minutes until you see the top of your pastries start to look golden brown!
  10. Let them cool for an hour or so, and if you want, you can dust them with powdered sugar before serving 🙂
