30 10 40

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 cups very thinly sliced peeled peaches or frozen unsweetened sliced peaches, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package (3 ounces) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese (softened or cubed), softened
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whipped topping
  • 6 fresh raspberries

Directions

  • On a lightly floured surface; roll pastry to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut out six circles with a floured 3-1/2-in round cookie cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut leaves from the scraps, using a floured 1-1/2-in. leaf-shaped cookie cutter; place on baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • In a large bowl, toss peaches with sugar; set aside. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the whipped topping.
  • Split pastry circles in half. Spread about 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over the bottom half of each; replace tops. Spread about 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture on the top of each. Arrange peach slices in an overlapping circular pattern on the cream cheese layer. Garnish each with a raspberry and puff pastry leaves. Yield: 6 servings.
