Prep Time15 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time30 mins

 1 Pkt Of Puff Pastry (320g appr)
 100 g Double Cream
 100 g Cream Cheese
 100 g Icing Sugar
 6 Strawberries
 4 tbsp Jam
 1 Egg

1

Prep:-
Take the Puff Pastry out of the fridge 10mns beforehand.
Turn on the oven to 220° 10mns before hand.
Cut the strawberries into slices.
Whisk the egg

2

Roll the pastry out -leave it on the greaseproof paper .
Cut length ways in half then cut into rectangles-I got 10 but you can cut them smaller if you want to make more.

3

Lay them on a baking tray- still using the greaseproof paper

4

Brush with egg.(you can use milk if you prefer)
Bake at 220° for 15-20mns or until risen and golden in colour

5

Meanwhile add the Double cream and Cream cheese to a bowl along with 1/2 the Icing sugar-add more if you like it sweeter.

6

Whisk till it thickens.
Transfer to a piping bag.
(You can just spread onto the pastry instead of piping if you prefer)

7

When the pastry has risen remove from the oven,allow to cool slightly then carefully cut in half. Lay out to cool completely -cut side uppermost.
They will firm up in 5-10mns

8

Pipe cream onto the bottom half of each pastry
Spoon 1 heaped tsp of Jam onto the top half of each pastry.
Place sliced strawberries onto the jam.- let them overlap the pastry slightly.

9

Place the creamed pastry onto the jam.
Flip them over so the jam lid is on top.
Dust with icing sugar.

10

Keep refrigerated till serving.
(I've offset the lid slightly so you can see them better)

11

I piped a little more cream over the strawberries as it looked pretty and hid the uneven pastry x

12

Easy swaps:-
Cream Cheese for Double cream.
Double cream for Mascarpone
Icing sugar dusting for Icing.
Strawberries for Raspberries.
Cream for Chocolate spread.
Puff pastry for Light paff pastry

Tip. If your puff pastry doesn't rise enough to cut in half then just use 2 pieces. It still works and looks just as effective x
