Recipe type: Pastry
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 pre-made pie crust ( I used Pillsbury)
  • 3oz. cream cheese, softened (1/3 reduced fat)
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla etract
  • ¼ cup berry jam (your favorite kind)
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • powdered sugar, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, beat egg and water; set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and vanilla extract until evenly combined.
  5. Sprinkle a little bit of flour onto work surface. Roll out pie crust to flatten the edges. Carefully spread the cream cheese over the pie crust, leaving about ½" from the edge. Spread jam over cream cheese. (If jam is to thick, microwave for 10 seconds to soften.)
  6. Cut pie crust into 8 wedges. Sprinkle a few white chocolate chips onto each wedge.
  7. Roll up each wedge, starting at the shortest side and rolling to the opposite point. Place the pastries, point side down, on the baking sheet. Brush the egg on the tops and sides of the pastries.
  8. Bake in oven for 20 - 25 minutes until golden brown. Let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
Notes
You could use any kind of jam you like. Raspberry, Strawberry or a Mixed Berry would go perfect with this recipe.

The pastry may crack a little when baking, the powdered sugar covers that up well. Trust me, know one knows.
