Strawberry Shortcake Puffs
Although it may not feel like it, it’s strawberry season somewhere! I personally love strawberries and am constantly looking for dessert recipes that use strawberry. My latest obsession has been Strawberry Shortcake Puffs! This is one of my favorite desserts because it tastes great and is quick and easy to make!
1 sheet of puff pastry
4 cups of strawberries sliced
¼ cup ad 3 tablespoons of sugar (divided like that)
1-½ cups of heavy whipping cream
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
optional: powdered sugar
1. Preheat oven to 400 °. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry and cut into squares (any size is fine, but I made mine about 3x3). Put them on baking sheets and bake until golden brown (about 12-15). Let them cool down completely
2. In a bowl, toss strawberries with the ¼ cup sugar. In another bowl, beat the cream, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and vanilla together until it forms stiff peaks.
*pro tip: if you don’t have a hand mixer/stand mixer, use a blender or magic bullet!
3. To serve, split the pastries horizontally in half. Scoop the desired amount of whipped cream and strawberries onto the bottom half then close it with the top half! If there is remaining whipped cream and strawberries, you can garnish the top. Optional: sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
