Breakfast Fruit Pastry

I found a recipe posted on by Giada De Laurentis for Breakfast Pizza. I adapted it a bit and made it for a brunch this morning. I thought it was delicious!

1 sheet puff pastry
2 T butter, melted
4 T cinnamon sugar, divided
1 cup mascarpone cheese
1 T heavy cream
1 1/2 T lemon juice
1/2 - 1 t lemon zest
2 cups mixed berries

Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature 40 minutes or until easy to handle. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer pastry sheet to the lined baking sheet and brush the pastry with the melted butter. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool the pastry on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the cheese, cream, lemon juice, and zest.

Spread the cheese mixture over the cooled* crust. Top with mixed berries (I used strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries), sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar, and serve.

* Make sure the pastry is completely cooled so the cheese doesn't melt!
