Sweet-Tooth Consoling Dessert

Filed under: In the Kitchen — Tags: , , — candid reflections @ 8:15 am

I dare you to make this for dessert … you’ll never be the same.  and neither will your thighs!


I discovered this recipe last night on a box of puff pastry in my freezer, my sweet tooth was screaming out for some satisfaction.  I made the recipe, and then adapted it for you(see below) to build individual desserts, rather than a big one that you have to slice (like the one in this picture.)  Better for presentation… and much less messy.

Strawberry Napoleon

1 package of puff pastry sheets
1 pkg. (3 ½ oz) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
½ cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tsp. milk
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen sliced strawberries
1 square (1 oz) semi-sweet chocolate

Thaw pastry sheets at room temperature 40 min.  Heat oven to
400 degrees.  Lightly grease baking sheet.
unfold pastry sheets on lightly floured surface.  Cut into 3 strips
along fold marks.  Then cut each strip into three squares. 
Place on baking sheets.  Bake 15 min or till golden brown. 
Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks.

Prepare pudding mix according to package directions with 1 cup of
milk in large bowl.  Fold in whipped cream (after you’ve whipped it.)  Cover and refrigerate. 
Stir confectioners’ sugar and 2 tsp. milk in small bowl.  Spread
confectioners’ sugar mixture on six pastry squares. 

Spread a large spoonful of pudding mixture on 1 pastry square. 
Top with a handful of strawberry slices.  Repeat layers.  Top with
iced pastry square.  Repeat to make six desserts.  Drizzle desserts
with melted chocolate.  Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hr.

So…. what are you waiting for???
