Recipe For Strawberries And Cream

readysteadycook with the starter enjoyed and the main course devoured, I set my mind to how best to do strawberries and cream – without it being obvious. My friend Chantelle asked for some ‘cross aunts’ and this inspired me to make strawberry filled croissants and a strawberry mille-feuille.

  2. slice a couple of strawberries quite thickly
  3. place the square of pastry with one of the points facing you
  4. layer the strawberries across the pastry, from point to point
  5. now roll the pastry over the strawberries until it resembles a croissant
  6. tuck in the edges and shape
  7. bake for 22 minutes
  8. remember, the strawberries will be hot so do not enjoy straight away!
