  • 1.5 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Assorted fruit

  1. Combine 1/2 cup cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and maple-bourbon reduction. Drop dollops of mixture onto the centre of half of your puff pastry squares.
  2. Bake at 190°C for 12-16 minutes.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup cream cheese, sugar/sweetener of your choice, zest & lemon juice. Fill the other half of your puff pastries squares and top with whatever fruit you'd prefer! Bake at 200°C for 12-16 minutes.

Combine 1 cup and 1/2 cup real maple syrup in small sauce pan. Bring mixture to a small boil and reduce to medium heat. Continue to simmer for approximately 8-10 mins, stirring frequently.
