      Cream Cheese Danish

      1 pkg puff pastry dough, thawed according to package directions
      1/4 cup flour, more or less for rolling out the dough
      1/2 cup blueberries, freshly washed and dried
      1/2 pkg cream cheese, softened at room temperature
      1/3 cup sugar or substitute honey
      1 tsp vanilla extract
      1 egg, beaten
      2 tbs water

      Garnish: powdered sugar for dusting

      Once thepuff pastry dough has thawed, place it on a lightly floured surface and roll it out into a large rectangle. Preheat the oven to 400°.

      Cut the dough into a 2 by 3 grid, making six squares total.

      Score each square using a knife, creating a 1/2 inch border on the dough.  Use a fork to score the inner square, about six times to keep it from puffing during cooking. Leave the border alone, it will look nice puffed.

      Transfer the squares onto a parchment-lined (or lightly greased) baking sheet.

      Mix together the cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.

      Place about 2 tbs of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of one of the pastry squares. Press about 6-9 blueberries into the cream cheese. Repeat with the remaining squares.

      Beat together the egg and the water. Use a pastry brush to spread the egg mixture onto the border edges of the pastry.

      Bake for about 20 min, or until golden brown and puffed.

      Dust with powdered sugar.  Makes 6
