Recipe Ingredients for Cheese Danish

8 ounces neufchatel
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed (9 1/2 by 9-inch)
1 large egg

Recipe Directions for Cheese Danish

  1. Adjust an oven rack to upper-middle position and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together the cream cheese, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla. Set aside.

  2. Roll the pastry into a 12 by 9-inch rectangle on a lightly floured counter, making sure it doesn?t stick to the counter while rolling. Cut the rectangle into six 4 1/2 by 4-inch rectangles (cut it in half the long way and then cut each strip into thirds). Transfer the pastry rectangles to the baking sheet, spacing about 1 inch apart. Using the tip of a paring knife, score a 1/2-inch border around the edge of each pastry, then brush the borders with the egg wash (no fear ? if you don?t have a pastry brush, using your fingers works just as well!). Prick the pastry with a fork every 1 inch or so within the border (see the picture below for a visual). Place a generous 2-3 tablespoons of filling in the center of each pastry and spread it into an even layer leaving the border uncovered.

  3. Bake the pastries until fully puffed and golden about 12-14 minutes (watching carefully so they don?t overbrown). Serve the pastries warm or at room temperature.
