One of my favorite desserts growing up were some store-bought puff pastries filled with a jam-like filling and a sweet cream, also known as Flakies. They obviously got their name from their flaky pastry that always melted in your mouth.
I tried to recreate those delicious pastries at home and I think I made them better than the store-bought ones! These Strawberry Napoleons will bring back childhood memories and make you want more than just one!
These Strawberry Napoleons are super easy to make because you’ll be using store-bought puff pastry to start with. Next time I’m going to attempt to make my own puff pastry but for these I went ahead and cheated.
The filling is made with fresh pureed strawberries and topped with Gay Lea’s Whipped Cream (which is made with real cream). It’s rich, creamy and so delicious! Pairing the two together was a match made in heaven!
Just because these Strawberry Napoleons are easy to make don’t think that compromises their taste. You can serve them to your friends and family and they’ll think you spent all day in the kitchen. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
If you have any leftover whipped cream you can do what my kids love to do – spray it directly into your mouth! As much as I should be the role model for them, I enjoy doing it just as much as they do – so good!
There were so many desserts I could have made using Gay Lea’s Whipped Cream, so I picked out a few for you to see!
