Cara’s Kitchen: Strawberries and Creme Puff Pastry

This is and will always be one of my absolute favorite dessert recipes of all time, plus it’s super easy and I will admit that I could easily eat a whole pan of this desert in one sitting with zero shame. Here, I’ll spill the secret on how you can do the same.


  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 4 oz of softened cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups of sliced strawberries (depending on your preference)


  1. First off preheat oven to 400.
  2. On parchment lined baking sheet cut your puff pastry into any desired shape.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together your cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
  4. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of your puff pastry.
  5. Beat an egg, add 1 tsp of water and brush onto sides of the puff pastry where you can see the dough, to give it a golden color while baking.
  6. Place your slices of strawberry on top of your cream cheese in rows of about 3 (again, as many strawberries as your heart desires)
  7. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden.

With love,
