Strawberries And Cream

This recipe for Strawberries And Cream is a continuation from previous posts.

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 Croissants

all three of the ingredients were on my list of ingredients, and I did not need anything else to make my dessert

EDIT:

When I was still writing my blog over at Letter-Dash and then Food24, this recipe was a continuation of two days’ worth of blogging. I really gave no thought as to how it would read 11 years down the line. And as you can tell,  my recipe writing skills were sorely lacking in this post. I mean, how big a sheet of puff pastry did I use? Did I cut it to a particular size? How many strawberries did I end up using? And how much cream did I whip? So if you find yourself here, wanting to make this recipe, I sincerely apologise.
