Strawberry Cream Cheese Pastry Recipe: If you are looking to impress your friends and family with your amazing baking skills, then this recipe is for you!
The hardest part of this recipe is probably slicing the strawberries thin, but don’t worry I have an easy trick for getting the job done quickly!
1 package Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
4 ounces softened cream cheese
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup strawberry preserves or pie mix
1/2 quart strawberries
1 tablespoon water
Slice strawberries and set aside. I have found an egg slicer makes quick work of thinly slicing the strawberries.
In a small bowl mix cream cheese, brown sugar and vanilla until smooth. Lay out the crescent rolls and press seams together. Spread cream cheese mixture and strawberry preserves onto rolls. Sprinkle half of the sliced strawberries on top of cream mixture.
Fold over the edges, pressing to seal. Egg wash the top of the pastry and bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Cream Cheese Icing Ingredients:
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 ounces softened cream cheese
3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
Heat 1/2 stick of unsalted butter over low heat until melted. Turn off the burner and add 2 oz of cream cheese and whisk until smooth. Sift 3/4 cup of powdered sugar into your pan and mix thoroughly.
Remove pastry from oven and smooth icing over the top and garnish with the remaining sliced strawberries. Serve and enjoy!
