My raspberry pinwheels

Sometimes you got alive dangerously, I read a fabulous quote the other day from Richard Gere and you know what they are words to live by.
So as a result my raspberry pinwheels came to life.

For this recipe you will need:
1 sheet of puff pastry (I have a recipe for my own puff pastry on my blog and it's super easy and divine)
1/2 a pack of cream cheese
1/3 cup of caster sugar
16 raspberries the bigger the better
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Icing sugar to dust

Begin by pre heating you oven to 220'c

Unravel your puff pastry and cut four even squares out of it using a pizza cutter, the cutter makes this a speedy job.

Then on the corners of the squares cut the pastry 1/4 of the way in. Put the pastry aside and get stuck in with your filling.

Mix the cream cheese well to achieve a smooth consistency then one by one add in the vanilla, sugar and lemon juice. 

To each pastry square add a dollop of the cream cheese in the centre then slightly spread out.

Add four raspberries to each square then taking a corner of each of the pastry squares turn it in to the centre, pressing it gently onto the cream cheese which will act like a glue!!!!!

Once all the squares have been fiiled dust generously with icing sugar and pop in the oven.

Bake for 20-25 mins you want to achieve I rich colour on the pastry to ensure it is fully cooked all the way through as the cream cheese will add alot of moisture to the centre...

When fully baked and slightly cooled dust again with icing sugar and detour with a hot cup of tea!!!
