Mini Strawberry Napoleons

Bakery Napoleons are good, but this make-at-home version, with puff pastry, vanilla pudding, fresh strawberries and lots of whipped cream, is so much better!

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Cut the pastry sheet into 3 strips along the fold marks. Cut each strip into 4 rectangles. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 10 minutes.  Split each pastry into 2 layers, making 24 in all.

Step 4

Prepare the pudding mix according to the package directions except use 1 cup milk.  Fold in the whipped cream.

Step 5

Reserve 8 top pastry layers. Spread 2 tablespoons pudding mixture on each of 8 bottom pastry layers. Top each with 1 tablespoon strawberries and another pastry layer. Top with the remaining pudding mixture, strawberries and the reserved top pastry layers. Sprinkle with the confectioners’ sugar.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note: For 1 1/2 cups sweetened whipped cream, beat 3/4 cup heavy cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Serving Suggestion: Drizzle with spoonfuls of chocolate sauce, if desired.

    This was a very simple and delicious dessert to make. I have made it with various flavors of pudding: cheesecake, white chocolate, vanilla, etc . Each ones makes it taste a little different, and it's delicious every time.
