These adorable, individual danishes are a perfect way to start your day. The original recipe was a classic cream cheese danish.. but I just love eating, drinking & decorating with mason jars, so I created a little twist. Make a batch & save them until you are ready to eat, one delicious, creamy, flaky danish at a time.
ingredients: mason jars (half pint size), 1 sheet frozen puff pastry thawed, cream cheese, sour cream, 1 egg yolk, lemon, sugar, vanilla extract (recipe makes 4)
Step 1. Mix together 4 oz. cream cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 egg yolk, zest of lemon, 3 tablespoons sugar, & 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Step 2. Refrigerate mixture for 30minutes
Step 3. Lay the puff pastry flat & cut into four pieces
Step 4. Take each piece of puff pastry & line the inside of a mason jar
Step 5. Split the mixture evenly between the jars & spoon into them
Step 6. Put jar (without lid) on a cookie sheet in a cold oven. Turn on oven to 375 and bake for 20min or put in the freezer & save for a yummy breakfast later. If cooking from frozen, bake at 375 for 40min.
After cooled, enjoy straight from the jar, or spoon onto a plate & eat steamy hot & melted.
