Ricotta Puff Pastries with Strawberry Compote

2                  sheets puff pastry

1/2               cup, plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/2               cup granulated sugar, divided

1                  tablespoon ground cinnamon

1                  tablespoon water

1                  package of fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

1/2               cup homemade, part-skim or whole milk Ricotta cheese

1/4               cup powdered sugar

1/2               teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Heat oven to 400 F.

Cut both puff pastry sheets into nine squares.  Make a slit in corner of each square toward the middle of the pastry.  Fold corners to other corners to create pinwheel shape.  Brush pastry with 1 tablespoon heavy cream.  Combine granulated ¼ cup granulated sugar and ground cinnamon then sprinkle on each puff pastry.

Bake 12-15 minutes until pastry is golden brown and raised.

In a medium saucepan on medium to high heat, pour in remaining granulated sugar and water.   Once sugar is dissolved, pour in fresh strawberries.  Bring mixture to boil then simmer 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until strawberries are broken apart and semi-thick sauce is created.

Let chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.  To chill faster, put in freezer 45 minutes.

In a medium bowl, using a mixer, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

In a separate medium bowl, combine ricotta, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix until fluffy. Return whipped cream to ricotta mixture and whip for 1-2 minutes until mixture is light and fluffy.

Spoon ricotta cream into the center of each puff pastry pinwheel. Spoon strawberry compote in middle of ricotta mixture.
