Is this post sponsored?
Technically no. I was not paid to write this post or share this recipe with you. I was sent a few items and coupons for Driscoll’s berries from the feed feed and Driscoll’s in exchange for a post on social media. But since I like to go above and beyond I decided to share the recipe on here as well.
It’s seriously way too good not to share, plus I am truly a huge Driscoll’s fan so I thought it was a match made in heaven 🙂
How to make blueberry cheese danish
Start by rolling your cold (but not frozen) puff pastry dough on a floured surface to an 11 by 11 inch square. Cut the dough into a 3 by 3 grid, making 9 equal squares. Using a sharp knife score a smaller square inside each piece, about ¼-inch from the edge. (make sure to not cut all the way through) Poke the center of the puff pastry squares with a fork to make sure that that ares doesn’t puff up. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the softened cream cheese with the sugar. Then using a measuring spoon, scoop out a heaping tablespoon of cream cheese mixture and place it in the center of the puff pastry squares. Gently spread it, making sure to stay clear from the edges.
In a different small bowl, mix the blueberry jam with the fresh blueberries and scoop out a heaping tablespoon on top of the cream cheese mixture them. Gently spread again, avoiding the puff pastry edge.
