Strawberry Napoleons

Serves 4

Originally aired

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, defrosted 
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, washed, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
PREPARATION

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350°F.
 
Unfold the puff pastry onto a clean work surface and cut into 12 equal rectangles. Poke 3-4 holes in each with a fork. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden and puffed, 13-15 minuets. Remove from the oven and let the puff pastry cool completely. 
 
While the pastry cools, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula, fold the jam into the whipped cream until incorporated. 
 
To assemble the napoleons, lay out four pieces of puff pastry. Top each with a thin layer of strawberry slices then a generous dollop of whipped cream. Spread the cream slightly to coat the strawberries and dust with confectioners’ sugar. Repeat another layer then top each stack with a final third piece of puff pastry. Dust once more with confectioners’ sugar and serve.
