Easy Strawberry Mille-feuille a.k.a Napoleon 拿破仑千层草莓酥

We just came back from a short trip to Cameron Highlands. I bought some very fresh and large strawberries. I immediate thought of this French pastry Mille-feuille or Napoleon which made up using three layers of puff pastry, and alternating with two layers of pastry cream. I made an easy version, using store-bought puff pastry sheet, sandwich with whipping cream that flavoured with strawberry flavours and fresh strawberry from Cameron highlands.






 
This pastry not only easy to make, but it tasted great! Crispy, buttery and saltiness of puff pastry, yummy strawberry whipped cream (feel like eating strawberry ice-cream) and sweet fresh strawberry, yummy!



Easy Strawberry Mille-feuille a.k.a Napoleon 拿破仑千层草莓酥
*makes 2  

1 sheet of puff pastry (8”x8”), thawed
200g whipping cream (dairy)
30g caster sugar
1/2tsp strawberry flavoured powder, optional
Fresh strawberry
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Method
  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Place puff pastry sheet on the baking tray, using a fork, prick holes over the whole pastry to prevent it from puffing up while baking. Slice pastry sheet to half. Bake for 25mins or until golden brown. Remove from oven, wait till slightly cool, slice each sheet into 3 small rectangular.
  3. Add sugar and whipping cream in a mixing bowl, place this mixing bowl over a large mixing bowl that filled with ice water. Beat over high speed till soft peak. Add in strawberry powder, continue to beat till stiff peak.
  4. To decorate, place one baked puff pastry on a serving plate, pipe cream on top and place some strawberry. Place second piece of baked puff pastry, pipe cream and place some strawberry. Then place third piece of baked puff pastry, dust with some powdered sugar then serve.

记得式过贪心从金马仑带了很多草莓回家,很快就得消灭才可以。做冰棒,做雪糕最快速的方法了。哈哈哈 。。。。。。
