Puff Pastry is amazing….and can become addictive if you aren’t careful. There should be a warning label on the box! These sheets of dough look innocent enough when you open the package, but when baked to golden perfection, puff pastry will call to you in your sleep.

I don’t make desserts too often…it is just too much temptation for me! But for these, I thought…Okay, I am using fresh strawberries so that counts as fresh fruit, right? …Who ever says they ate too much fresh fruit? Anyway, after I ate one of these babies I had to walk away..literally.  They are so good I could see myself cramming them into my mouth, strawberry juice running down my chin…not pretty.  Just a note – The strawberries dry out a little during baking, but that just concentrates the strawberry flavor. And the puff pastry, well it’s buttered puff pastry…’nuff said!

These little pastries are truly a miracle. The baked strawberries taste like homemade strawberry jam and combined with the puff pastry, they just melt in your mouth.  Let me show you how I made them…

Here are the cast of characters used to make these little clouds of yummy flavor.

Ingredients

1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed (1/2 box)

1 pint of fresh strawberries

2 TBSP melted butter

3 TBSP granulated sugar

Glaze (optional)

1/3 cup confectioners sugar

1-2 TBSP heavy cream

Start by pre-heating the oven to 400 F. Then, hull the strawberries and cut into thin slices, about 5-6 slices per strawberry. Set aside the paring knife, you’ll need it again (who needs more to wash up later?) Set aside the strawberries….go ahead… eat a few slices if you need to.

Is there anything more lovely than ripe, fresh strawberries? Well, of course there is… but I was making a point here!

Unfold the puff pastry on a sheet of parchment paper…or flour dusted board. To save your sanity, do not unfold the pastry onto any surface it could possibly stick to…because given any chance, it will cling for dear life!

Using a pizza cutter (easy) or sharp knife (not as easy), cut the puff pastry sheet into 9 squares. It’s best to cut on the existing fold lines, then cut each long rectangle into 3 squares, for a total of 9.

Now, retrieve that knife (by now it’s probably hiding under something on the counter) and cut a shallow channel about 1/4 inch from the edges of each square. Trust me, there is a real reason for doing this!

Now, melt the 2 TBSP of butter. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush each square with melted butter, then sprinkle each square with about 1/2 the sugar.

Place 4 slices of strawberry on each pastry square, staying within the lines you cut with the knife.

Dust the squares with the remaining 1/2 of the sugar and place the sheet pan in the 400 F oven. Bake for 20 minutes, but begin checking the oven at 18 minutes. The pastry will be golden brown when the pastries are done.

Transfer the pastries to a cooling rack and let rest until the strawberries are cool. They are ready to serve, but if you want to make them extra good (why not?) then whip up the simple glaze and drizzle it on the pastries.

Make the glaze by combining the confectioners sugar and cream in a small bowl.  Add the cream 1 TBSP at a time until you have reached the consistency you want for the glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the pastries! Let the glaze set a few minutes then serve these beauties!
