The holidays are here and I love baking up some love for the family. I used to make these cookies for breakfast a long time ago with puff pastry and cream cheese. They were so simple, flaky, creamy, and perfect. Over the years, and a couple kids later I guess in an effort to cut calories I quit baking them. I decided to Share the Delight and bring them back with a twist in these Creamy Cocoa Breakfast Cookies!
I love these cookies because they are so simple to throw together and you can prep them ahead of time to just slice and bake when you are ready to serve.
In a bowl mix 8 oz of softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup of sugar and a drizzle of International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie flavored creamer. It just makes everything better. Have you tasted it yet? OMG! Go now to International Delight to sign up and get a coupon for yours!
Now lay out a piece of thawed puff pastry on a piece of parchment paper. Roll it out with a rolling pin a little bit just to make the rectangle a couple inches bigger. Spread the cream cheese over the top evenly.
My favorite part. Sprinkle the top with semi sweet chocolate chips and dried mini marshmallows. I found these on the aisle with the cocoa at my grocery store. They came in a little carton. They are the same dried mini marshmallows that go in cocoa, and they work perfectly in this pastry!
**You have to use the dried marshmallows. Regular marshmallows will disintegrate while baking.
Now roll the puff pastry up (long side to long side) and wrap it in the same parchment paper you rolled it out on. Place it in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight until you are ready to bake. This makes it easier to slice and helps the cookies stay together when baking.
When you are ready to bake slice the cookies into 3/4 – 1 inch thick slices and place the on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 20 – 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from the oven, drizzle with some glaze, and serve. SIMPLY DELICIOUS!
