Simple But Elegant Blueberry Puff Pastry Tarts

I will never turn down a flakey breakfast pastry. Even more so if it’s a blueberry puff pastry served warm from the oven dusted with powdered sugar! And I can promise, these babes check ALL the boxes named “delicious”. They also happen to check the boxes named “simple”…”easy”…”quick”. Which is why I know you’ll want to have these on repeat in your kitchen!

Major bonus here. If you’re ever looking to mix it up, simply swap any berry for blueberries. Raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, mulberries, and even peaches all work well. Don’t have fresh berries on hand? Or craving this blueberry puff pastry tart smack dab in the middle of winter? Opt for jam or preserves! The thicker and more chunky the jam the better. While these tarts HIT in summer, you can actually enjoy them all the year long.

Ever wondered about the difference between jam, jelly, and preserves? Short story- of the three, preserves contain the highest amount of fruit. If you want to rabbit hole a bit further, I’d suggest starting here. They get straight to the point!

The best of both worlds. Creamy and sweet. Flakey and buttery. A simple delight best enjoyed with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate!

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry, I enjoy the Wewalka brand

  • 1 8oz Pack of cream cheese, I use Philadelphia

  • 3 Tablespoons Honey

  • Handful Fresh blueberries

  • Dusting Powdered sugar

Directions

  • It will be important to make sure you puff pasty has been in the fridge so it’s not frozen, and that your cream cheese has been sitting at room temp for a while.
  • Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the back of your puff pastry and get that block of cream cheese up to room temp before you get started.
  • Whip your cream cheese until smooth. Add 3 tablespoons of honey and mix until blended.
  • Wash your blueberries and pat dry if needed.
  • Lightly roll your puff pasty on a floured surface and cut into 9 evenish squares.
  • Gently score a smaller rectangle within each rectangle and prick the middle all over with a fork. This step will ensure that the middle stays down and that the sides are forced upward when they hit that high oven heat!
  • Place on a parchment lined baking dish and then dollop bits of cream cheese mixture in the middle, spreading towards your scored knife marks.
  • Finally… drop a few blueberries right on top! Pop into that hot oven but make sure to check a few minutes before suggested time. Mine finished 3 minutes ahead of schedule!
  • Pull from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. After 10 minutes, dust lightly (or heavily). EAT.

Notes

  • Let’s say blueberries aren’t your thing, or t’s not blueberry season, or you just aren’t feeling blueberries…use your favorite preserves, like strawberry, cherry, or apricot! 
  • While I prefer this recipe with cream cheese, have fun experimenting with other whipped soft cheeses like ricotta or mascarpone.
  • I also prefer honey as the sweetener in this recipe. It’s not too sweet or overpowering, but adds the perfect light touch. You can of course whip in powdered sugar, agave, simple syrup or any other sweetner of choice! I’d encourage you to start with less. Taste. And add more as needed.
  • Store leftover in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge. Pop in the toaster oven for a few and they’re as good as new!

Puff Pastry is What’s For Breakfast

If you’ve been on the hunt for cafe kinda vibes in your home kinda vibes… this blueberry puff pastry is the perfect place to start. Simple. No fuss. Large bites of delicious. Light and flakey too. And while totally delicious on it’s own, this HITS perfectly with a piping hot cup of coffee, some scrambled eggs and crispy slices of bacon. They happen to pair perfectly with my hot chocolate recipe too *wink wink*.

Honestly, one of the reasons I love this recipe so much is the marriage of both taste and convenience. We all know a block of cream cheese can sit in the fridge for a hot minute before expiring. Puff pastry can hang out in the freezer for months before it needs to be used. And the recommended fresh berry alternative, jam- is shelf stable for a long while. As is honey. Come to mention it, powdered sugar too. Which means you probably have most of these ingredients already at your fingertips. At the very least, you can have them stocked for when the mood strikes!

Also great for throwing on your counter to roll out pie crusts, knead breads etc... no sticking! For real. Whether you're rolling out dough, roasting potatoes, or baking a galette THIS is an extremely helpful tool.
