Cheesecake Fruit Squares

Recipe by Kosher.com staff

Make these super-fancy-yet-easy-to-make cheesecake fruit squares with store-bought puff pastry topped with a homemade cheesecake layer and some sliced fruit. The tahini-lime drizzle adds that extra bit of delicious flavor to these creamy-filled crunchy treats.

Fruit Squares
  • 1 12.35-oz (350-g) pkg Gefen Puff Pastry Squares
  • 4–5 cups assorted fruit of your choice
  • 1 egg, mixed with a splash of water
  • turbinado cane or granulated sugar, for sprinkling
Cheesecake Layer
  • 2 egg yolks
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp Gefen Vanilla Sugar
  • 16 oz (450 g) cream cheese, room temperature
Tahini-Lime Drizzle (optional)
  • 4 Tbsp Mighty Sesame Tahini
  • 4 Tbsp Heaven & Earth Lime Juice
  • 4 Tbsp Gefen Confectioners’ Sugar

To make the cheesecake mixture, place all the ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until combined, with an immersion blender, if preferred.

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line two baking sheets with Gefen Parchment Paper and set aside.

Lay out puff pastry squares on the baking sheets. Spread cheesecake filling on the pastry, leaving about a 12-inch (1-cm) border (no need to be precise). Top with fruit. Brush with egg wash around the exterior of the square and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 15–20 minutes or until tarts are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool slightly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Combine ingredients for tahini-lime drizzle. Drizzle over cooled squares and serve, if desired.
