Indulge in some Heart-Shaped Cheese Danish this Valentine’s Day! These delightful pastries are a breeze to whip up and will surely impress your loved one.

Last year, I discovered the joy of making cheese danishes from scratch, and I’ve been hooked ever since. They’re surprisingly easy to make but taste like something straight out of a fancy bakery. Treat your sweetheart to these adorable heart-shaped cheese danishes this Valentine’s Day—they’ll be smitten!

These heart-shaped cheese danishes are light, fluffy, and bursting with a delightful mix of tangy and sweet cheese filling. I’ve added a dollop of homemade chia seed jam and a sprinkle of cane and powdered sugar on top for the perfect touch of sweetness.

  • 1 package of puff pastry 2 sheets
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup jam
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar optional if using store-bought jam
  • Avocado oil spray or egg wash
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  • Begin by thawing the puff pastry on the counter for 30-45 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out the puff pastry on a clean surface and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the heart shapes. Place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Using a knife, create an indent in the center of each heart with a smaller heart shape. This will be the space for the cheese filling.
  • In a mixing bowl, blend together the softened cream cheese, jam, vanilla extract, and sugar (if using) until smooth. Fill each heart shape with this creamy mixture.
  • Brush the edges of the pastries with an egg wash or spray them with avocado oil.
  • Bake for 16-20 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.
  • Allow the danishes to cool slightly, then sprinkle them with powdered sugar before serving.


Store your cheese danishes in the refrigerator and enjoy them within 3-4 days for maximum freshness.
