Yield: 6+ servings

Get ready to taste something heavenly decadent with every bite of this lemon cheese breakfast pastry puff! Your palate's cloud of happiness!


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • 1 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 lemon, small to medium, zest and juice
  • 3 pieces puff pastry, thawed (if frozen), cut into 3" x 9" each sheets
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbl. sugar


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar and lemon zest/juice. Blend well into a smooth mixture.
  2. Flour a clean surface. Use a rolling pin to enlarge a puff pastry piece to about 6x12”. Take about one-third of the lemon filling and ‘mound’ in the almost in the center and down the length of the long side of the pastry. Leave about an inch (or a little more) of pastry around.
  3. Gently fold over. Tuck, roll, and pinch the pastry making a long filled piece. Take a fork and gently press around three sides (the short ends and the long side closest to you). Repeat with the remaining pieces of puff pastry.
  4. Put on a parchment paper covered baking sheet. Brush the top with egg wash. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 17-20 minutes. Remove and cool a few minutes. Serve immediately..


If filling oozes out during baking, no problem. When you remove from the oven, just take a spatula and scrape towards the pastry if has run out of! It’s like a sauce!
