Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 400
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper
  • Place the cream cheese and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and cream them together on low speed until smooth
  • With the mixer still on low, add the egg yolks, ricotta, vanilla, salt, and lemon zest and mix until just combined. Don't whip!
  • Unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured board and roll it slightly with a floured rolling pin until it's a 10 by 10-inch square
  • Cut the sheet into quarters with a sharp knife
  • Place a heaping tablespoon of cheese filling into the middle of each of the 4 squares
  • Brush the border of each pastry with egg wash and fold 2 opposite corners to the center, brushing and overlapping the corners of each pastry so they firmly stick together
  • Brush the top of the pastries with egg wash
  • Place the pastries on the prepared sheet pan
  • Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry and refrigerate the filled Danish for 15 minutes
  • Bake the pastries for about 20 minutes, rotating the pan once during baking, until puffed and brown
