The perfect Puff Pastry Recipe

I bought a little box of fresh raspberries and wanted to use them in something delicious. Cheesecake sounded good. A crispy, flaky Puff Pastry Recipe also sounded good. So, I decided to put those together into this very simple, but very delicious Raspberry Cheesecake Danish Pastry.

What kind of berries can I use for this Danish Pastry?

This Danish Pastry calls for fresh raspberries, but you can use the berries you prefer! Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or you can even make it multi-berry and add several berries together for an ultimate Danish Pastry.

Do I have to use the Splenda Sweetener?

Of course not! You can either use the Splenda Sweetener or just 1/4 cup of granulated sugar.

As part of my collaboration with SPLENDA® Brand, I replaced the sugar in the cheesecake with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener (check out their new packaging in the picture below) for less sugar added. My husband who didn’t know about the little swap, couldn’t even tell.

I hope you give this lovely Danish Pastry a try!

  • I have a big box of puff pastry, calling me from the freezer. Locally grown Driscoll berries are appearing at my grocery store. This looks very easy to do, and I appreciate the photos that shows me how to make the braid. Pinning! Thanks.
