Cheesecake Lemon and Raspberry Flower Pastry

Hello Friends,  It has been a busy summer here at the Smith’s.  We are loving this weather, Summer vacations, slumber parties and trips to the water park.  I was inspired by a video I saw on Facebook that showed how to create these flower pastries. I decided to fill them with lemon and raspberry cheesecake.  YUMMMMM!!  This is super simple and a real WOW.  Great for Sunday Brunch, my favorite kind of project.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 min or until golden brown.  The cheese cake will be soft when you first take the pastries out of the oven. Once they cool off they will set.
