Some are sweet and fruity and some with salty anchovy fillets, but oh my these Sweet and Savory Pastries are out of this world delicious.

Pastry is baked food made with a dough of flour, water, and shortening that may be savory or sweetened. Sweetened pastries are often described as bakers’ confectionery.

Units Scale

Sweet Cream Cheese and Fruit

  • 225g cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 roll butter puff pastry

Savory Pastries

  • ± 125g Whipped Chive Cream Cheese
  • 5 Anchovy Fillets – chopped into small pieces
  • 3 extra fillets – cut into 3 pieces for topping
  • 1 roll butter puff pastry


Sweet Cream Cheese and Fruit

  1. Whip the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth.
  2. Note: I only used ½ the above amount as I only used 1 roll of pastry for the sweet filling.
  3. Divide your filling into 9 equal portions and after you folded the pastry as desired, add the filling.
  4. For the sweet pastry, add some fresh fruit of your choice.

Savory Pastries

  1. Defrost pastry in the fridge, and keep it cold at all times, it MUST stay cold in order to work with it.
  2. Open the roll and work on the parchment paper it’s wrapped in.
  3. Slice in 9 equal blocks
  4. Now you can have fun and make different patterns, as per your own liking, but be creative and have fun while doing it.
  5. For the savory, add the Whipped Chive Cream Cheese, then top it with a small sliver (1/3) of an anchovy fillet.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400F/204C until puffed and toasted.
  7. If you can, let them cool down before you gobble them up.
