Blueberry Cream Cheese Pastry Ring

I have been on a blueberry kick lately and cannot get enough of these delicious little gems bursting with amazing flavor. And, this blueberry cream cheese pastry is my newest recipe which is absolutely delish.

Making this blueberry pastry is really pretty simple and doesn’t take much time at all. Just lay out the crescent triangles on a baking sheet and form a shape that resembles the sun. Cook the blueberry filling, mix up the cream cheese mixture and add both to the crescent ring. Fold the small tip of the crescent over the filling and tuck under to secure, then bake. That’s it, pretty easy for an incredibly delicious blueberry dessert that is to die for.

With summer right around the corner, this is a delicious dessert to make using fresh blueberries. We’ve made it with blackberries, raspberries and pineapple too and all of them tasted scrumptious. Those recipes will be posted at a later time and I know you are going to enjoy those as well as this blueberry cream cheese pastry.

Place triangles on an ungreased baking sheet so that the wider end of the crescent is in the center forming the circle with about a 5 inch opening in the center and the smaller tip of the crescent is on the outside.

*When forming the circle, the wider ends of the crescents will overlap each other.

Spread cream cheese mixture over the wide part of the crescents.

Spoon blueberry filling on top of cream cheese mixture.

Fold the small tip of the crescent over and tuck under the wider part to secure forming the ring.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool for a few minutes.

Making The Glaze Drizzle
