Quick Ricotta Cheese Danish
Ricotta Cheese Danish
8 oz ricotta cheese
2 Tablespoons of caster (table) sugar
1 teaspoon of citrus zest (I used a combo of orange and lemon)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
6 puff pastry squares
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
Layout the puff pastry squares on a parchment lined baking sheet. With a fork begin to pierce the center area. This is where the cheese mixture will go.
In a bowl mix the ricotta cheese, sugar, vanilla and zest together very well. With a tablespoon, begin to fill each puff pastry in the pierced area. Spread slightly so it cooks evenly.
Place in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Serve slightly cool.
Perfect with coffee and served on fine china! :-)
