7-MINUTE BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST PASTRIES

With a few minutes of prep and a handful of ingredients, these pastries come together in about 30 minutes. I love them for breakfast with a coffee but serve them for dessert too with cream or ice cream. This recipe can easily be double.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet store-bought puff pastry, thawed according to package directions
  • a little powdered sugar or flour for dusting
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries*
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 teaspoons coarse sugar such as demerara

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place pastry on a lightly flour board or counter and roll until a 12-inch (30cm) square. Cut pastry into 4 equal squares and place these onto the baking sheet.
  • Spread cream cheese on the pastry leaving a 1-inch (2.5cm) boarder around edges. Sprinkle the cheese with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar.
  • Combine blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice and the remaining sugar in a small mixing bowl. Dived between each pastry leaving a 1-inch (2.5cm) border around edges.
  • Brush the pastry with a little egg. Cut diagonal slits in each corner of the pastries so the pastry can fold up easily. Fold the pastry up covering a part of the berries. Brush the pastry with egg. Sprinkle with the coarse sugar. Bake for 25 minutes or until the sides are puffed and golden.

Notes

*Frozen berries can be used but they will produce more juice than the fresh berries so increase the cornstarch by a teaspoon or so. I prefer to use fresh berries as they hold their shape and bleed is minimal.
