Ingredients Needed for Raspberry Cream Cheese Mini Pies

    7 ounces of cream cheese
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon powdered sugar
    7 ounces of puff pastry (1 sheet)
    1 egg yolk, whipped
    1 tablespoon raspberries

How to Make Raspberry Cream Cheese Mini Pies

  1. Add the cream cheese, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar to a small bowl. Mix until even. Set aside.
  2. Cut the puff pastry sheet using a 3 or 4-inch square cookie cutter. We’ve ended up with 6 of them.
  3. Take one dough square and fold it once so that you end up with a triangle. Make 2 cuts, each one parallel to the triangle’s equal sides and at 1/2 of an inch off them. Unfold the triangle. Wrap the two opposing strips thus formed, one over the other. Do the same for the other 5 dough squares.
  4. Coat each one with egg yolk, add 1 teaspoon of cream cheese mixture and top with a raspberry.
  5. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, transfer the mini pies on it and bake for 25 minutes at 400⁰F/200⁰C.
  6. Serve garnished with powdered sugar.
