Serves 10 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 22-25

Ingredients

2 (17.3 oz) packages of frozen puffed pastry

8 oz cream cheese, softened

seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

10 TBSP granulated sugar

4 large egg yolks

2 c blueberries

2 tsp potato starch (or cornstarch)

4 tsp cassis

1/4 tsp kosher salt

demerara sugar for sprinkling

confectioner’s sugar for finishing


Let the puff pastry thaw in the refrigerator overnight.


Let the cream cheese come to a softened state at room temperature.


Preheat your oven to 375°F.


In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 6 TBSP granulated sugar, seeds from vanilla bean, vanilla extract, and 2 egg yolks.


Mix with a wooden spoon until combined and smooth.


In another bowl, combine blueberries, 4 TBSP sugar, potato starch, cassis and salt.


Mix gently.


On a lightly floured surface, roll each pastry sheet into a 10 inch square.


With a round cutter or a plate, cut into 2 rounds per sheet.


(I used a cereal bowl and gathered the scraps and quickly and lightly rolled another sheet to get 2 more rounds for a total of 10).


Arrange on parchment lined baking sheets.


Beat 2 egg yolks with 2 tsp water to make an egg wash.


Brush the outer edge of each round with egg wash.


In the center of each round place a TBSP of cream cheese and 3 TBSP of blueberry mixture.


Fold in half to form a half moon and pinch the edges to seal.


Crimp as desired. Cut a small line in each top to vent.


Brush with egg wash.


Sprinkle with demerara sugar and bake for 22-25 minutes.


Allow to cool and then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
