Lemon Berry Cheesecake Puff Pastries

You guys!! I just bought a big box of blueberries for .99 cents! Naturally I purchased several, because… .99 cents! Blueberries!!

I’m a little excited about it.

This is my favorite time of year. Berries are in season, lemons are put in everything, and babies!

Wait, what?

Lemon Berry Cheesecake Puff Pastries

Yes, babies!

My dear friend Ashton (creator of the awesome blog, Something Swanky) is due to have a little boy very soon. So a bunch of us virtual blogging folks decided it would be best to throw her a surprise virtual baby shower!!

Ashton Baby Shower

Complete with food she will not be able to eat unless she makes it herself.

Bummer.

Somebody better make these for her! If I lived closer, I would totally share…

The good news, however, is that these adorable puff pastries are suuuuuuuper simple to make.

So dig in, Ashton!

I know she will love these pastries because she makes things like this, and this. Oh man, and these too!

Yeah, she’s going to love these. So will you!

Light and fluffy lemon cheesecake is baked on top of some once frozen puff pastry dough… so simple. The pastry dough puffs up around the edges for a light and flaky crust. Once the cheesecakes are cooled you simply scoop on some jarred lemon curd, top it with fresh berries, a dusting of powdered sugar and some lemon zest for an extra punch of lemony flavor.

They’re simply gorgeous, and taste phenomenal!

Wouldn’t these be perfect for your next gathering?

You could even just set out the baked puff pastry and let your guests fill them with all sorts of berries, jams, ice cream… I mean, c’mon! So easy!

    I’m making these for an Easter brunch and was wondering if they would be fine to make a day early and keep in the fridge? Or should I make them the day of?

  2. These look out of this world and I would totally gobble them up if this was a real life baby shower!! Thank you so much for making me feel so special today! I’m loving all of these posts 🙂
