• 1 package (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed
• 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature
• 2 cups powdered sugar (or more)
• 4 Tbsp. butter, softened
• 1 cup fresh blueberries
• Red Decorator Frosting
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Lay out thawed puff pastry on a floured surface, and gently using a rolling pin to even out the creases. Use a pizza cutter or a large knife to cut the pastry into your desired shapes. (I made about 16 squares with one sheet, and 6 rectangles with the other sheet, but you can also use cookie cutters or cut different sized shapes.) Lay out the cut pastry dough on a baking sheet or two. Then use a fork to then poke numerous holes into the middle of each piece, to minimize inflation.
Bake pastry according to package directions until it is puffed and very lightly golden, about 12-15 minutes. Remove and let cool.
Meanwhile, whisk together (or use an electric mixer to combine) the cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar on medium-high speed until smooth. Add more powdered sugar if you would like a thicker cream cheese spread.
Assemble the pastries by topping the cooked puff pastries with the cream cheese spread, then layer with the red decorator frosting and blueberries. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to a few days.
