Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup hulled strawberry quartered
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1 pkg frozen butter puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Demerara sugar or granulated sugar
Cream cheese filling:
  • 6 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Method

In small saucepan, stir together strawberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon; let stand for 30 minutes. Stir 3 tbsp water into strawberry mixture; bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened and strawberries begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl; let cool.

Cream cheese filling: Meanwhile, in bowl, beat together cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.

On lightly floured surface, roll out each piece of puff pastry to 12-inch (30 cm) square. Cut each into 4 squares.

Divide cream cheese filling onto half of each square, mounding filling. Top with strawberry mixture. Brush pastry edges with water; fold 1 corner over filling to make triangle. With tines of fork, press edges to seal; pierce top of each turnover in 3 places for vents. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or for up to 12 hours. (Make-ahead: Freeze and pack between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 2 weeks; bake frozen, adding 3 minutes to baking time.)

Whisk egg with 1 tsp water; brush over turnovers. Sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 425ºF (220ºC) oven until puffed and golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
