Cream Cheese Puff Pastry cookies.

Cream Cheese Puff Pastry cookies.

In an effort to play catch up from the past couple of weeks I am digging into my files from 2012.

2 weeks ago I lost my last living grand parent. It has been hard. There were things left unsaid and it makes my heart heavy. When I returned from her funeral I immediately started a new job which has turned into what I can see as a long time position but also, it was a much needed distraction.  Thankfully I shoot everything I do so it is nice to have a little cache of work I can use until I am fully adjusted to my new schedule.

These delicate cookies are always an fancy addition to my cookie trays.

Super easy to make, they have a fantastic flavor and the texture is just wonderful.

  1. So sorry for your loss. I hope you can find peace with those words left on said… Writing about it, sending it out into the universe always helps me when I’m struggling with something and I hope it will do the same for you.
    Great recipe puff pastry cookies I mean wow!! These look delicious 🙂

  2. Thanks for your kind words. It is hard to believe it will be a month tomorrow.
    I agree, it is never easy.
    I am just trying to focus on the good memories.
    Loving the new job and it totally came at the right time. Love when that happens.

  3. Maple is a great addition to the cream cheese! Syrup or flavoring both work.
    I agree, if it were not for store bought puff pastry it would not happen in my kitchen too often. It is quite labor intensive making from scratch.

  4. Yikes, and how did I forget to say the following words: I’m very sorry for the loss of your grandmother. I only have one grandparent left. One I never met, one suffered for a long time before she passed, and the other left rather suddenly. No matter how they go, it’s always difficult and you never feel like you had the chance to properly say goodbye. I know it’s tough but I’m glad you have your new job as a distraction. Hang in there!

  5. I love simple, easy recipes like this that create such an indulgent, decadent treat. Thank God for the invention of frozen puff pastry. I made something similar at Christmas with Pilsbury crescent dough – one version with Nutella, another with peanut butter and chocolate chips. Cream cheese would taste awesome!

  6. Thanks.

    I think I love them so much because they are so easy and decadent. Not your average cookie!

    Hope you had a great weekend!
