Quick Ricotta Cheese Danish

I am beginning to believe the puff pastry in my fridge has been multiplying.   I wanted to make a little something for breakfast.  When I opened the fridge, I saw the leftover 2 squares of puff pastry and ricotta cheese.  Hmmm how about a danish!    This recipe came together quickly and I cooked it in my Breville Toaster Oven.   Although I only made two squares the recipe below is if I was making six.  Enjoy!

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!  :-)
