Prep recipe in advance.
* Slice peaches thinly, and place in bowl. Add sugar, and let mascerate.
* Set pastry sheet on counter to thaw out.
* Place cream cheese in bowl to soften.
Using a hand mixer, mix the cream cheese with the preserves until creamy.
With a rolling pin, roll the pastry sheet out to enlarge slightly. Cut in six even rectangles, and place on baking sheet prepared with parchment paper.
Divide the cream cheese/preserve mixture among the six sections of puff pastry. Smooth out, leaving room to fold the pastry up over the center. See picture on blog post.
Add approximately four slices of peaches to each pastry. (See picture on blog post.) Fold the ends up around the filling so it forms a shallow bowl. Brush the egg wash on the exposed puff pastry.
Bake on 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned and peaches are softened.
Serve immediately with a scoop of ice cream. These are also good served cold or at room temperature.
Some variations to this recipe:
Use other fruits.
You could do apples, blueberries, raspberries, and so on!
Try other fillings.
Instead of preserves, try some blended fruit. Instead of cream cheese, try ricotta cheese whipped with honey.
Include a topping.
Drizzle some icing on top and add some shaved almonds, or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
