Have you ever made Blackberry Cheese Danish? If not, today's the day to give it a whirl! It goes great with a hot cup of coffee in the morning, and can also double as a dessert. It's simply delicious!
First things first. A trip to the roadside market is one of life's greatest pleasures. In the south, produce stands pop up here and there, mostly hidden along the back roads on the way to town.
It's always a thrill to discover a new treasure at the market. Today's find was a big basket of sweet, plump blackberries. Half the fun is deciding what to make. Maybe a pie? A cobbler? Something unique, perhaps?
What You'll Love About This Recipe
Puff pastry is right up there with refrigerated pie crusts in the 'thank you for making my life easier' section. I truly admire anyone who makes pastry dough from scratch. I'm just not into rolling pins. I've had one too many flour poofs in my face to appreciate the fine art of pastry-making.
However...I'm definitely into blackberries. Blackberries, thyme, and jam are my friends. Swirling them into cream cheese sounds delightful. Combining them on a sheet of puff pastry sounds amazing. Making it all happen in 30 minutes is magical!
How to Make It
To assemble the danish, start by unrolling the puff pastry onto a sheet pan. If your puff pastry doesn't include parchment paper, make sure you roll that out first. Then, roll the edges up all the way around.
Mix together a combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon curd and thyme. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the puff pastry, then layer a mixture of blackberries and jam on top. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, allowing pastry to cool for at least 30 minutes.
The final step is my favorite, because it's what makes this gorgeous blackberry goodness blossom into a danish pastry. Make a glaze by mixing powdered sugar and half & half together. Have some fun while you drizzle the sugar glaze over the entire surface. It will bring out the pastry chef in you!
