Ingredients

Pastry

  • 1 box puff pastry 2 per box
  • 1 beaten egg for brushing on the pastry
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds for sprinkling on top
  • 1 tbsp turbinado sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)

Filling

  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 6 oz almond paste 1/2 of a 12oz can
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup jam your favorite

Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract or more per taste
  • 2-4 tbsp milk

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400f

Filling

  • Beat with a hand mixer or wooden spoon the softened cream cheese, almond paste, and egg yolk.
    Set aside
  • Stir your jam so it's easy to spoon.

Pastry

  • Thaw until workable, roll out slightly
  • On the outer 1/3 of each side of the pastry, slice cuts on a diagonal about 1 1/2 inches apart
  • Spread half of the filling mixture down the center (save the other 1/2 for your 2nd pastry)
  • On top of the filling spoon on 1/2 of the jam (save the other 1/2 for your 2nd pastry)
  • Fold each cut strip into the center, brushing on the beaten egg to act as a glue, alternate each side, crossing them over each other in the middle.
    Seal the ends so the filling doesn't leak out.
  • Brush on the beaten egg liberally, then top with the almond slices, and then a sprinkle of turbinado sugar (optional).
  • Place on a baking tray lined with parchment and if you have space, put it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm and chill. This step will allow the puff pastry to puff up more when baked.
  • Bake about 30 minutes at 400f. Checking often and tenting with foil at the end to prevent over-browning. When done, the pastry should have puffed up slightly and the filling is bubbling.
  • Allow to cool, then drizzle on the glaze.
  • Slice and enjoy!

Glaze

  • In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, almond extract, and a few teaspoons of milk at a time. Add additional milk as needed (only a spoonful at a time) and stir until you get the desired consistency.
