Take-out Tuesday, Luscious Lemon Raspberry Pastry

The birds were chirping in the South this weekend, temps hit 70 and spring was in the air

My thoughts went straight to springtime holidays, and lighter tasting desserts after Valentine’s Day chocolates

This creamy lemon raspberry pastry would be at home for breakfast, brunch afternoon tea or dessert

The recipe was adapted from Susi’s Cooking and Baking Adventures and it is a creamy lemon raspberry delight


Raspberries are flavorful now while their sister strawberries tend to be tasteless this time of year


Instead of flouring your work area, try using a piece of parchment paper to roll out puff pastry or pie crust.  It’s much less messy and the dough won’t stick to the paper.  You can also use it to help transport the rolled dough to the pan


I opted to bake the pastry crust in a large square pan for ease of handling


Brush the pricked dough with beaten egg, sprinkle with sugar and bake


Cream cheese is beaten with sugar and cream and then combined with lemon curd and spread on the pastry


Top with raspberries
