Now that Halloween is over we’re emerging from our candy coma and enjoying some simple baking again. This past week we’ve had homemade carrot cake, mini peanut butter cookies and these Cheesecake Pasty Pockets. Shae of course took the reins on this dish and made it her own.Cheesecake Pastry Pockets #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids

If it were up to me I would’ve added chopped frozen strawberries to the cheesecake filling, or served with a fruity dipping sauce OR dipped them in a melted chocolate sauce.

Making these was easy but even easier when you use premade pastry dough. These Goya discs are a great size, don’t need cutting, rolling or any prep.

Cheesecake Pastry Pockets


  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tbls of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • pastry dough, thawed


In the bowl of a mixer beat cream cheese & 1/3 cup sugar till combined.  Add egg yolk, vanilla and salt and blend till smooth.

Add a heaping spoonful of cream cheese mixture to each pastry dough and fold and pinch closed.

Top with additional sugar sprinkle and bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes till golden brown.

Serve room temperature, topped with powdered sugar, fruit or caramel sauce.

She knew she had to be quick after adding the cheesecake filling so she could fold the dough.  I helped reinforce the pinch when she was done so we didn’t have any major catastrophes.Cheesecake Pastry Pockets #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids

She’s really good at working the mixer lately. She’s learning how to lower the mixing head more gently and click the speed toggle one notch at a time. She’s so cute as she’s counting and measuring.Cheesecake Pastry Pockets #kidsinthekitchen #cookingwithkids
