Number 3 in the 4-part meal. Using pastry puff again. This recipe will make about two strudel squares.
2 puff pillows - halved

Cream Cheese and Strawberry Filling
2 oz. Cream Cheese (roughly 4 Tbsp)
4 Tbsp Powdered Sugar (plus extra for dusting)
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
3 Tbsp strawberry jam (plus 4 Tbsp extra - optional)
Fresh Sliced Strawberries (optional)
Mix cream cheese, confectioner sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Heat strawberry jam in microwave to 15 to soften and combine with cream cheese mix.
With the puff pillows already halved, take the bottom slice of the pillow and spread a nice helping of the strawberry filling. Optional: You may add some of the additional strawberry jam on top of the cream cheese in place of the fresh sliced strawberries or add both.
Then place the top half of the puff pillow and dust with a light or heavy coating of powdered sugar.
