Inspired a by last week's filling, and the memory of a puffed pastry pull apart pizza, I came up with the following recipe:
1 8oz box of cream cheese
3 TBSP honey goat cheese
3/4 cup honey greek yogurt
zest of 1 orange
3 TBSP flour
3 TBSP granulated sugar.
Set aside while puffed pastry defrosts (about 2 hours at room temperature).
I screwed up the thawing of the puffed pastry. For one, I left it about 5 minutes over two hours and it was placed too close to the stove. This made the pastry really difficult to work with (as you can probably see by the pictures.
Preheat oven to 400 *F.
2 rolls (1 box) thawed out puffed pastry
3/4 rough chopped pecans, lightly toasted
1 cup of orange curd
Slices from 1 orange
Now at this point I should have chilled the dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. I didn't, but I should have.
I had some extra dough and some extra cream cheese filling so I made something of a floral design with the dough in the center, put the rest of the cream cheese mixture on top, and arranged the orange pieces like so:
Bake until the pastry is a darker golden brown, approximately 20 - 30 minutes.
Even as the bread was baking I realized two things: the puff pastry was not nearly chilled enough when it went into the oven, and there was too much moisture and too much filling for it to bake properly. So my first suggestion is to CHILL THE DOUGH prior to putting in the oven and do not let it get too warm at any point during the preparation time. Second, I should have probably halved the amount of cream cheese filling I put in.
Because of the problems above, the center of pastry was underdone. However, flavor-wise it was good.
