You know the days when you are craving something sweet but you don't want to spend too much time  to actually bake? well this a perfect recipe for those times. It takes less than 30 minutes and its delicious.


1 sheet thawed puff pastry
20 raspberries
Powdered sugar
1 8-oz block cream cheese
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Cut the puff pastry into 4 equal squares.
Leaving a ½-centimeter border, make 8 total cuts along the edges of the square, with each cut going about ⅓ of the way through the length of the edge. Make sure the cuts do not touch.
Place a tablespoon of the cream cheese filling in the middle of the square, then top with 4 raspberries.
Take one of the edge flaps and fold it toward the center, looping over the raspberry. Repeat with the other flaps. Place a raspberry in the center, on top of where all the flaps overlap.
Repeat with the remaining pastry squares.
Bake for 15–20 minutes until pastry is golden brown and puffed.
Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and enjoy
