This stunning dessert tastes as good as it looks! All it takes is one sheet of puff pastry, sliced strawberries and a very easy-to-make vanilla mousse. A thin layer of icing tops it all.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Sprinkle the work surface with the flour. Unfold the pastry sheet onto the floured surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 strips along the fold marks. Place the pastry strips onto the baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Split the pastries into 2 layers, making 6 layers in all.

Step 4

Prepare the pudding mix according to the package directions with 1 cup milk in a large bowl. Fold in the whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes. To make icing, stir the confectioners’ sugar and 2 teaspoons milk in a small bowl.

Step 5

Spread the icing on 2 top pastry layers. Spread 3/4 cup pudding mixture on 4 pastry layers. Top each with about 1/3 cup strawberries. Stack 1 strawberry-topped layer onto a second one to make 2 stacks. Top each stack with an iced pastry layer. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.  Cut each Napoleon into 6 pieces.

Recipe Tips

  • Helper: For easier slicing, refrigerate the Napoleons for a least 1 hour and use a wet serrated knife.
  • Serving Suggestion: The pastries may be drizzled with 1 square (1 ounce) semi-sweet chocolate, melted, before serving.
  • Recipe Note: Parchment paper keeps the pastry from sticking to the baking sheet and also makes for easier cleanup. If you don't have parchment paper, you can spray the baking sheet with cooking spray instead. However, cooking spray may cause the bottoms of the pastries to brown more quickly, so begin checking for doneness 5 minutes early.

    This is delicious and looks like I spent hours in the kitchen. I used Cool Whip and it was a hit with friends and family. They couldn't believe I made it and hadn't bought it from a bakery.
