Kat Jeter & Melinda Caldwell
sheet frozen puff pastry
Cream cheese softened
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a medium bowl mix cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.
Unfold thawed puff pastry sheet and roll it out into a rectangle that is ¼ inch thick.
Cut into 6 equal rectangles.
Lightly score the puff pastry pieces by drawing a smaller rectangle within each one. This creates a "ring" around the outside of each piece that will puff up.
Use a fork to prick the middle of each puff pastry piece several times so it does not rise like the outer ring will.
Spread about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese in the center of each puff pastry.
Top with a thin layer of peach jelly.
Finish by topping jelly with 2 slices of fresh peaches. Note: You can use frozen peaches too just make sure to thaw them and pat them dry before using)
Make a simple egg wash by mixing the egg and water and brush the egg wash around the outer edge of the puff pastry.
Place in a 400 F oven to bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
While the pastry bakes make the glaze by mixing the confectioner’s sugar, milk, and vanilla together in a bowl.
Once the pastry is cooked and has cooled to room temperature drizzle the glaze over the pastries and enjoy!
