Servings 18 danishes


  • 1 package of frozen puff pastry sheets thawed according to pacackage instructions
  • 1 8-oz package of cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup plum jam or jelly
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • tsp ground cloves
  • tsp ground nutmeg


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Unroll the thawed, but still cold, puff pastry. Cut each sheet into 9 even squares. A pizza cutter works well for this. Place one square in each well of a muffin pan, and press gently into wells, leaving the corners out.
  • Mix together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Divide evenly among puff pastry squares, spreading slightly with a spoon and pressing down with back of spoon to make a small pocket in the cream cheese for the jam to sit.
  • Mix together jam, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, and top each pastry square with a dollop in the cavity of the cream cheese.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, until puffed and golden. Watch them carefully so that the filing does not leak out too much. You may need to adjust your baking time.
  • Serve immediately. Leftovers are best when warmed just slightly in the microwave.
