Recipe For Strawberries And Cream

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.

Strawberries and Cream


  • puff pastry
  • strawberries
  • cream


  • Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  • whip the cream

to make the croissant

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

to make the mille-feuille

  • at the same time as you are baking the croissant place two rectangular pieces of puff pastry into the oven
  • when they have cooled pipe on a generous layer of cream onto one piece
  • layer on the strawberries
  • place the second piece of puff pastry on the top
