Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry cut into 2 inch by 4 inch rectangle (see notes)
  • 1 large Egg beaten
  • 1 cup Lemon Curd
  • 1 cup Whipped Cream
  • 1 pint Ripe Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Confectioners Sugar optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Lay the semi-frozen puff pastry sheet out onto your counter. Using a sharp knife cut the puff pastry into 2" by 4" rectangles. Brush the tops with the egg and bake for 9 or 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. You can do this step the day before but it is much better prepared the same day.
  • Lay 3 pieces of puff pastry out in front of you. Brush 2 of the pieces each with 1 tablespoon of lemon curd and then 1 tablespoon of whipped cream. Cover the cream/curd layers with sliced strawberries and then top with the last piece of puff pastry. Dust with powdered sugar if you like

Notes

Don't stress about the puff pastry. Use a puff pastry made from 100% butter if you can. If not, Pepperidge Farms makes a decent puff pastry that you can find in the frozen aisle of every major grocery store nationwide. Cut rectangles that are 2 inches by four inches, or make any other shape that you like. I have done squares, circles, and triangles before.
