Packaged puff pastry is an awesome staple to keep in your freezer...you can make all kinds of savory and sweet goodies with this pastry as a basis. I made blueberry tarts for Liam and Jessi last time I saw them, and have used the pastry for a creamy mushroom & chicken meal...the possibilities are endless. A couple days ago, I found a recipe for Strawberry Napoleons on the puff pastry box (click on the link to see the recipe)...this is my little bit of a spin on their recipe...it was so good!
I love being creative in the kitchen, but it's also comforting to come across recipes that I can learn from while adding my own kitchen creativity. My little additions include adding "Liqueur de Fraises" (strawberry liqueur) when whipping the heavy cream and adding blueberries. Not a big difference...but changed the flavor.
The process is relatively easy but time consuming. Once the pastry is cooked, cooled and cut in half lengthwise, you begin assembling the layers. There is enough pastry to make two napoleons...I'm showing you just one.
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
