Cream Cheese Danish with Almonds is a simple recipe with a few basic ingredients that is ready in about 30 minutes. Perfect for holiday breakfasts or brunch.
16-18 ounce package frozen puff pastry
but still cold
flour for rolling
8-ounce packages cream cheese
Preheat oven to 375°. Lightly grease 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
Unroll one sheet of puff pastry roll out gently to fill the baking pan. It will spread so it doesn't need to be exactly to the edge. Place sheet in the baking pan.
Beat egg yolk. Add cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice and mix until thoroughly blended. Spread evenly over the puff pastry to within a ¼ inch of the edge.
Roll out the remaining puff pastry sheet gently to fit over the top of the cream cheese mixture. Place gently on top.
Whisk egg white and brush over the puff pastry. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
Back until pastry is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Slice and serve.
The puff pastry dough I used has two rectangular pastry sheets. If yours is one sheet, obviously you want to cut it in half.
