Quick Vegan Cherry Danishes

Did we just hear someone saying "oh là là"? Looking at these little cherry bites, you might think you're standing in a little French bakery having to choose between overpriced but delicious pastries! But far from it! You can easily prepare these cherry bites at home and, of course, serve them with different fruits depending on the season. They are especially good if you don't have much time to prepare something and don't feel like experimenting but want a great result that will impress your guests!

And this is how it works: First, we cut our puff pastry into strips, cover them with sliced almonds and bake the pastry in the oven until it’s golden brown and crispy. While it cools, mix the cream out of vegan cream cheese and whipped cream. Using a piping bag, we now apply the cream to the puff pastry strips and decorate them with cherries and blueberries.

And that's it - the cherry bites are ready to serve! No need to mix a dough or batter and not much effort at all! Plus, you should be able to find all the ingredients in any large supermarket without any problems.

Quick Vegan Cherry Danishes

32 servings
30 minutes (+ 12 minutes baking time, 30 minutes cooling time)


For the danishes:

  • 375 g (13.25 oz) vegan puff pastry
  • 50 g (1.75 oz) sliced almonds
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) fresh cherries
  • 50 g (1.75 oz) blueberries
  • plant-based milk
  • cherry jam (optional)

For the cream:

  • 100 ml (0.5 cup) vegan whipping cream
  • 1 tsp (8 g) vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp (8 g) cream stiffener
  • 150 g (5.33 oz) plain vegan cream cheese
  • 0.5 tsp ground vanilla
  • powdered sugar
  • lemon zest


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/355°F (convection heat). Cut the puff pastry into 4x8 cm (1.5x3 inches) strips and place them on a lined baking sheet. Brush the puff pastry strips with plant-based milk and top with sliced almonds.

  2. Bake the puff pastry strips at 180°C/355°F for about 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

  3. In the meantime, pit the cherries and cut them into quarters or eighths. Thinly slice the blueberries.

  4. For the cream, whip vegan whipping cream with vanilla sugar and cream stiffener until stiff. Then fold in vegan cream cheese and season with ground vanilla, powdered sugar, and lemon zest. Transfer the cream into a piping bag and refrigerate until later.

  5. Once the puff pastry strips have cooled down, optionally spread a thin layer of cherry jam on top, then pipe the cream in a snake shape. Garnish with cherries and blueberries and serve immediately.
