Vegan Puff Pastry Hearts with Cream Cheese Filling and Raspberries

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12-15 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes (excludes chilling time)
  • Yield: 24 hearts 1x


Looking for some heart-shaped treats without the hassle? Look no further! These vegan puff pastry hearts with cream cheese filling and raspberries are incredibly easy to make.


  • 300g vegan cream cheese*
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 sheet vegan puff pastry dough (275g)
  • 7 cm wide heart shaped cookie cutter
  • some vegan heavy cream for brushing
  • 300g fresh raspberries (opt for smaller ones if possible)
  • powdered sugar for dusting


  1.  Add the cream cheese and vanilla extract to a bowl and sieve the powdered sugar on top. Beat for about 2 minutes with an electric hand mixer, until the mixture is fluffy. Chill in the fridge while continuing with the puff pastry.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 C (350F). Let the puff pastry warm up for about 5 minutes on the kitchen counter before unrolling it, to prevent cracks. 
  3. Unroll it and cut out 24 hearts, placing them on baking sheets fitted with parchment paper. Brush each heart with some vegan heavy cream – wait with brushing the other sheets right before baking.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven (I prefer to bake the sheets one at a time for even browning, keeping the other ones chilled in the meantime) for about 12-15 minutes, until golden brown. Let them cool completely.
  5. Carefully slice in half with a serrated knife. Fill the cream cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large tip (I used the Wilton 108 tip) and pipe onto one half of the heart. 
  6. Place 3 raspberries on top and close with the other half, pressing it down a bit very gently.
  7. Store in the fridge for at least 6 hours, or preferably overnight to soften the puff pastry and dust with powdered sugar right before serving.


*One suitable for baking – preferably almond-based.
