of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
cup (1 stick) butter, softened
cup strawberry preserves
teaspoon vanilla extract
teaspoon grated lemon zest
teaspoon lemon juice
cups confectioners' sugar
Heat the oven to 400°F.
Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Using a 3-inch round biscuit cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 9 (3-inch) circles. Place the pastries onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 10 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 each pastry into 2 layers.
Beat the butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the preserves, vanilla extract, lemon zest and lemon juice. Reduce the speed to low. Beat in the sugar, 1 cup at a time, until just blended.
Divide the strawberry mixture among the bottom pastry layers. Top with the top pastry layers. Sprinkle with additional confectioners' sugar. Garnish with additional lemon zest, if desired
