Preheat oven to 400º. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Cream the sugar with the cream cheese until smooth. Add yolks, ricotta, vanilla, salt and zest until just combined. Don’t whip.
Unfold one sheet of puff pastry onto lightly floured surface and roll it slightly with a lightly floured rolling pin. Cut into equal size squares. Do the same with the next sheet. Place a heaping spoonful of filling into the center of each square. Brush the border of each pastry with egg wash and fold opposite corners to the center. Brush top with egg wash and place pastries on prepared pan. Refrigerate filled danishes for 15 minutes. Bake for 20 minutes rotating the pan once during baking until puffed and brown. Serve warm.
