  • Use a rolling pin to flatten out the puff pastry dough. Divide the dough into equal-sized pieces (about 8-9 squares). Place a dollop of the sweet cheese on one half of a puff pastry square. Fold over the other side to form a triangle. Repeat until all the puff pastry squares are stuffed and folded.
