- 1 sheet puff pastry
- 2 ounces (1/4 cup) cream cheese, softened
- 1 1/2 tablespoon strawberry jam
- 1 drop red food coloring (optional)
- 2/3 cup very small diced strawberries
- 1 large egg, whisked with 1 tablespoon water
- Powdered sugar to dust on top
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl, mix your cream cheese with your strawberry jam and food coloring and chill it until you need it.
Roll out your puff pastry and use your heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out hearts and lay them on cookie sheet lined in parchment paper.
Lightly score the pastries about 1/3 of an inch in from the edge, being careful not to push hard enough to go all the way through the pastry.
Use about a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture per pastry and place it in the center of the heart.
Top each with your strawberries then brush on your beaten egg white around the edges.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle the tops with icing sugar and serve!
You won't be able to get enough of these delicious pastries!
