INGREDIENTS

  • 800 gr (2 sheets) Alfa puff pastry
  • 300 gr Ardo Blueberries
  • 250 gr Arla cream cheese
  • 60 ml Arla fresh whipping cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 55 gr granulated sugar
  • 1 tbs sachet vanilla sugar
  • 1 Lemon (shavings)
  • 20 gr cornflour
  • 1 egg for brushing
  • 3-4 tbs icing sugar

METHOD

Method:

 

Remove the puff pastry from the freezer and let it thaw completely in the refrigerator. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese with the egg yolk, granulated sugar, vanilla and lemon zest.

In another bowl, mix the blueberries with the cornflour.

Spread a sheet of puff pastry on a paper-lined oven tray. Spread half the cream cheese lengthwise in the middle of the sheet, so that it covers 1/3. Sprinkle half of the blueberries on top. With a pizza cutter or knife, cut strips of about 1,5cm thick, on the other 2/3 of the pastry, left and right of the cheese and blueberries (1/3 left and 1/3 right). Alternating, bring the strips inwards to cover the blueberries.

Brush the surface with the beaten egg. Transfer the dough to the oven and bake at 180 C fan, for 50-55 minutes.

Mix the icing sugar with the cream until you have a light icing. Remove baked braid from the oven and using a fork, drizzle over the icing and create linear shapes. Serve at a warm or room temperature.
