Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the puff pastry sheet into 6 equally sized rectangles. Score the edge of the pastry dough with a knife, leaving a ¼″ rim around the outside. Using a fork, prick holes in the inside of the scored line.
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove. Using the back of a spoon, press down the center of the pastry. Where you scored it earlier will allow it to sink down while the edges remain risen – creating a pocket.
Meanwhile, beat together the cream cheese, butter, confectioners sugar, maple syrup, & vanilla extract until thick & creamy.
Fill the pastry shells with the maple cream cheese, & top with crumbled bacon.
