The summer season in Southern California never seems to end. I was planning to share some Fall recipes with you but my palates and tummy (and my heart, too) are telling me to go with strawberries instead of pumpkin spices! Plus, my kids don’t seem to appreciate pumpkin spices just yet. So, I guess I’ll hold off to those Fall recipes until we really get some cooler temperatures. Today, I want to share with you our family’s latest favorite, Strawberry Mille-Feuille!
Mille-Feuille (also known as Napoleon) is a French pastry made up of layers of puff pastry, alternating with pastry cream or whipped cream. The traditional version usually consists of three layers of pastry. But as you can see, my Strawberry Mille-Feuille was already sky high with just two layers! Maybe it’s due to the extra fluffy strawberry cream and fresh strawberry slices that I put in between the layers? Who cares, all I know is that it tastes awesome!
The puff pastry is crispy and flaky, packed with buttery aroma. The strawberry cream is silky, creamy and fluffy. I added some mascarpone cheese into the cream to add some body and richness. The cream is only slightly sweetened and compliments the sweet and tart strawberry slices beautifully. This Strawberry Mille-Feuille is so refreshing and yet, very decadent.
