I made these for me and Matt’s semi-anniversary because our love is sweet and cheesy. ❤
Cream Cheese Mixed Berry Pinwheels!
I got a tub of Go Veggie cream cheese at Kroger on sale, a cheap bag of mixed berries, and a box of puff pastry (this was the most expensive, at about $3.50). It yielded 22 pinwheels.
Basically, you just take your sheets of puff pastry and cut them into smaller squares, then make an incision from the every corner to almost the middle of the squares (there are super simple how-to instructions all over the internet for this, if you’re still confused).
Mix your cream cheese with a few tablespoons of powdered sugar and a few drops vanilla extract. Spoon out a dollop of it in the middle of the squares.
Defrost your berries and drain as much of the liquid off as you can. I just wrapped them in a bunch of paper towels and squeezed the hell out of them over a strainer. You can save the juice for other things too! Then put a spoonful of berries on top of the dollop of cream cheese.
Next you take each alternating corner of the puff pastry and fold it in toward the middle, and press them down in the center. (Again, there are hella guides and videos on how to do this. Sorry I didn’t get pics of my own process!)
Then you bake them at 375F for about 10 minutes.
