  8. Spread filling over cooled puff pastry.

Notes
If you want to make one large tart, you can pinch the puff pastry doughs together before baking them, using wet fingers, and placing them on one large baking sheet. You can also cut this recipe in half and just make one smaller tart (using one puff pastry sheet), and cut the cream cheese filling in half.
