Puff Pastries with Creme

I recently made this light dessert for my mother's 70th B-day lunch.  They couldn't have been easier!  And were soooo tasty, it took self control to only eat one or two.  Here's how to make them.
1 sheet of thawed Puff Pastry
3 ounces of softened cream cheese
1-2 T. powdered sugar (to taste)
splash of milk
fresh strawberries

Let your sheet of puff pastry dough thaw according to the package instructions.  I believe it says to thaw it on the counter for 40 minutes.

Unfold the pastry onto pastry cloth or piece of waxed paper.  Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into 9 squares.  Place the squares on a baking sheet or baking stone, pierce with a fork, and bake according to the package directions.

When they are cooled, mix the softened cream cheese with 2T of powdered sugar, to taste.  Add a splash of milk to make it a nice spreadable consistency.  Spread each square with a dollop of the sweetened cream cheese.  Garnish with a clean, sliced strawberry (or wouldn't blueberries be good on this too?!)  

For presentation, I placed them on a serving plate and sprinkled powdered sugar over and around them.  These were light as a feather, not too sweet or rich, and the leftovers (stored in the refrigerator) made a perfect treat to go with my morning coffee for the next several mornings!  :)

I plan to make these again soon.  Let me know if you give them a try!

Spring Blessings!
