what you need
  • 1 tub (8-ounce) PHILADELPHIA Strawberry Cream Cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, yolk and white separated
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar, divided
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17.3-ounce) box, thawed
make it
Preheat oven to 400°F. You'll need a baking sheet. Stir cream cheese, egg yolk and 1/4 cup sugar until blended. Slightly beat egg white in a small bowl.

Place puff pastry lengthwise in center of baking sheet and unfold. With a rolling pin, roll out to a 12-inch-long rectangle. Spoon cheese filling in 2-1/2-inch-wide strip down center. On both sides of filling, cut 1-inch-wide strips from filling to edge. Fold strips at an angle across filling, overlapping and alternating from side to side. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with remaining Tbsp sugar.

Bake 25 minutes until puffed and golden. Cool slightly on sheet on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Add chocolate chips to filling.

Scatter sliced almonds on top before sprinkling with sugar.

Use PHILADELPHIA Brown Sugar N' Cinnamon Spice Swirls Cream Cheese Spread instead of the strawberry cream cheese.
