Applesauce-Cheese Beignets

Ingredients

Directions

Cream cheese, sugar, applesauce, cinnamon, cornstarch, lemon and orange zest and vanilla, until smooth.

Beat in egg. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cut each puff pastry sheet into 12 squares. Spoon 1 teaspoon of applesauce filling onto 1/2 of the squares, brush outside edges with egg wash and top with second square, using a fork to seal the edges together.

Repeat, using all the dough, for a total of 24 beignets. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Let cool slightly before sprinkling liberally with powdered sugar.

Thin blueberry preserves with a little water and heat on stove, or in microwave and serve with pastries.
