    1 puff pastry sheet
    ½ cup lemon curd
    6 oz cream cheese, room temp

    1 egg, beaten
    2 Tbsp. coarse sugar

    In a medium bowl whip together the lemon curd, cream cheese, confectioners sugar, and extracts. In a separate bowl dust a little flour and confectioners sugar on the washed and dried blueberries to coat.

    Lay puff pastry on a silicone-baking mat and roll out slightly to seal seams. Spread filling lengthwise down the puff pastry.  Top with blueberries. Cut 2 in. Slices in the puff pastry about 1 ½ - 2 in apart down both sides of the filling. Take one piece at a time interchanging the pieces as if braiding the danish.  In a small bowl whisk egg with a tablespoon of water. Brush egg wash on pastry. Sprinkle with almonds and coarse sugar.
