Mid week quick dessert - Strawberry Mille Feuille
I whipped this up quickly one night the other week to use up a sheet of puff pastry that was lurking in the freezer. This is so easy that it's probably a good thing I don't have any more puff pastry, because I think we'd be eating a lot of them.
Strawberry Mille Feuille
1 sheet puff pastry
about 6 large strawberries, thinly sliced
whipped cream (I used the canned one)
about 2 tbsp strawberry jam
Pre heat oven to 210ºC (410°F).
Trim the edges from the thawed puff pastry sheet and then cut in half. Cut the 2 pieces into thirds making six rectangles. Put onto a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on tray.
To assemble the Mille Feuille, place a pastry rectangle onto a plate and then spread a bit of jam on top. Make a layer of strawberry slices on top of the jam. Spread/spray some whipped cream on top. Layer more strawberry slices on top. Put another piece of puff pastry on top and then repeat the jam, strawberries, cream and strawberries. Top with a third pastry rectangle. Repeat to make a second one. Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
