Patriotic Danish Pastry Dessert
Author: Nikki
Not only does this resemble a festive flag, but will be one of the tastiest treats you ever make! The cream layer paired with the buttery puff pastry and fresh fruit combine for one heavenly dessert!
  • 1 box puff pastry {2 sheets}, thawed to room temperature
Cream Cheese Filling
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Almond Extract
  • ⅓ cup blueberries
  • 1½ cups raspberries
  • 1¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and open pastry and place one sheet on the cookie sheet. With a small roller smooth out the creases. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix softened cream cheese, sugar and almond extract together until well blended. Spread on top of pastry sheet.
  4. Place blueberries in the upper left corner for the blue part of the flag. Open the other pastry sheet and cut 7 (1/2 inch-3/4 inch) strips and place them in stripes on the flag, making sure to leave about a 1 inch space between each strip. For the two stripes by the blueberries, trim them as necessary to fit. They will be smaller than the others in length.
  5. Place the raspberries in between the pastry stripes to make the red stripes.
  6. With the remaining dough cut small stars and place over the blueberries.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees F and bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown.
  1. Place all the frosting ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix well.
  2. Drizzle over the warm pastry and serve.
  3. Can also be served room temperature.
