Serves: 10


  • 6 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (17.3 oz.) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 small gala apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Coarse sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple or currant jelly


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract until creamy.
  • Flour your workspace and unfold the puff pastry sheets. Lightly roll the pastry with a rolling pin. Use a 3 ½”-4” round cookie cutter and cut four circles from each pastry sheet. Reroll remaining pastry and cut out two additional circles.
  • Transfer the pastry circles onto the prepared baking sheets. Lightly score a circular border ¼” from the edges and prick the centers of each pastry with a fork.
  • Spread a portion of the cream cheese mixture inside the border of each pastry then top with the apple slices.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Brush the edges of the pastries with the egg mixture and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden and puffed.
  • Allow to cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Microwave jelly in a cup, brush on apple slices to glaze.
  • Serve and refrigerate leftovers.
