Lemon Berry Puff Pastry

This Lemon Berry Puff Pastry recipe is impressive, yet easy!

These Lemon Berry Puff Pastry Flowers are flaky, cheesy, fruity , and so delicious! They actually don’t take that long to make either.

I got the idea to make these when I saw the video on my facebook feed. I watched the video and learned how to make the flower shape. I will do the other shapes with different fillings and toppings at another time.

I did not use the filling recipe that was on the video because I wanted to make one with lemon because my husband, Lee, just loves stuff that is lemon.

The instructions on the box of puff pastry said to let the pastry thaw on the counter for no more than 40 minutes. I am pretty sure mine was on the counter for about an hour.

When I went to cut the dough it was still frozen and was a little hard to work with. The more I worked with it, the faster it seemed to thaw. So by the time I was ready to fold the pastry to make the flowers, it was easy.

I would suggest moving the pastry from the surface you prepare it on to the sheet pan with a turner. I have small sheet pans so I only put 2 on each and baked them 2 at a time.

You could leave them in the oven until they are more brown. I like my food lightly browned in most cases.
