Step 1

I cut the sheet of pastry into 9 squares. Then spread the cream cheese mixture on a diagonal.

Added a few cherries...

And pulled the opposite corners up and pinched them together. Brush with a bit of egg wash and bake at 400-425 until golden brown, about 15 minutes in my oven.

Pour a cup of coffee and enjoy. These would be great for a brunch table, too!
