In a previous post I shared with you a recipe of cherry compote and I promised to share another one featuring this delicious treat. It took me a while to share, but you know how summer is! So after a long break, it´s time to start baking and sharing again.
This recipe is really easy to make; with just a few ingredients and a little time you can have a wonderful dessert or a warm breakfast!
- 1 sheet of puff pastry (mine was about 230 g)
- 75 g cream cheese
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of kirsh
- cherry compote (I used from 2 to 3 tbsp)
- 1 tbsp of milk with a tsp of sugar for the coating
- powdered sugar for dusting
On your baking sheet covered with parchment paper, line your puff pastry and visually divide it in 3 equal parts, the middle one part will form the base on top of which you will layer the cheese and cherry compote and the the sides so with a sharp knofe you need to cut equal strips (if possible) about 1,5 cm.
Put the cheese mixture in the middle add the compote and swirl a bit to slightly mix the 2 ingredients and start bringing the strips to the middle part overlapping between each one! Eventually, you will end up with a nice braided shape.
Once your braid is ready brush it with the milk and sugar mixture and bake in a preheated oven (200 C) for about 15 minutes or until the braid is golden brown.
Dust with some powdered sugar and enjoy for breakfast, for a coffee break or on your next picnic!
