The weather is warming up, the flowers are blooming and Easter is almost here meaning it's spring! I love the warmer weather, not only because I hate being cold but to me it also means more options of fresh fruits and vegetables. I'm ready to move on from the heavy comfort winter foods to light, fresh and fruity flavors. These Strawberry Cream Cheese Puff Desserts are the absolute perfect dessert for spring and summer. They're light and not too sweet for a delicious dessert everyone will love and keep coming back for. Best served at room temperature they're the perfect dessert to serve at a party and not to mention the pretty pink and cute designs you can make them.

These Strawberry Cream Cheese Puff Desserts are so easy to make using store bought puff pastry sheets. I had fun making mine in cute little bunny shapes for Easter but you can make simple squares, flowers for spring or any shape you like. Simply cut them out using a knife or cookie cutter and bake as directed on package. After allowing them to cool, cut in half and fill with a yummy cream cheese filling made of cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and strawberry jam. Top with fresh strawberries and try to eat just one, it's impossible!
