Want to make a special dessert for your honey this Valentine’s Day? No? Okay. Want to make a special dessert for yourself?? Either way, these Strawberry Napoleons are the way to go. They are fun, unique and most importantly, tasty.
Napoleons are traditionally a French dessert made with layers of puff pastry filled with pastry cream. Let’s put tradition aside for a little while and see what we can come up with. The most obvious detour I took from the tradition napoleon was the substitution of fresh strawberry whipped cream in the place of pasty cream. I have never been a fan of pasty cream as I find it to be a little too rich. I’m probably the only girl you’ll find who will pass up a cream filled donut :(. So I decided to make a lighter, fresher filling.
