Meadow Fresh Cream Cheese Bunnies

Serves
Prep time: 15 mins plus refrigeration
Cooking time: 20 mins

Use ready rolled butter puff pastry for this Easter themed, quick and healthy snack for kids. Once baked, let the kids help decorate the bunnies.

Ingredients

Method

  • Bunny cutter – 12cm in height x 6cm in width (if you don’t have a cutter, download or draw a pattern and cut around it)
  • 1 sheet Edmonds ready rolled butter puff pastry, slightly defrosted
  • 1 tub Meadow Fresh Traditional Cream Cheese (remove from fridge before using to help soften)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten with a pinch of salt for the egg wash
  • To finish:
  • For the eyes we used black mustard seeds, but you could use little pieces of liquorice or currants, dark chocolate for chocolate shavings or grated chocolate

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the firm pastry sheet on a lightly-floured bench top. Using a cutter or template, cut out 8 bunny shapes and place on the baking tray. Very lightly prick pastry bunnies with a fork.
  3. Place a good teaspoonful of Meadow Fresh Traditional Cream Cheese on the tummy of each bunny and smooth a little, but leaving slightly mounded. (The cream cheese should only spread a little during baking).
  4. Brush the pastry with the egg wash.
  5. Place in the refrigerator to allow the pastry to firm up and keep its shape, about 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from the refrigerator and place in the hot oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes until well browned and there are no wet looking patches on the pastry. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool a little.
  7. You can use extra Meadow Fresh Cream Cheese to place on mustard seeds for eyes.  

To serve: The pastry bunnies are great served warm topped with a few chocolate shavings or grate some chocolate over the cream cheese.
