Ingredients

Napoleon

  • 2 sheets puff pastry (thawed and cut into 18 equal squares)
  • 2 cups whipped cream
  • 1 cup raspberries (halved)
  • 1 cup strawberries (sliced)

Blueberry Sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Arrange the 18 pieces of puff pastry on two baking sheets. Prick each square all over with a fork.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • While the puff pastry is cooking, make the blueberry sauce by adding the blueberries, water, sugar, cornstarch mixture, vanilla, and lemon juice to a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer 3-5 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool some.
  • Once the puff pastry is cool, spread about 1 tablespoon of whipped cream onto 12 of the pastry pieces.
  • Lay strawberries over 6 of the whipped cream covered pieces, and raspberries over the other 6. Add another dollop of whipped cream on top of each layer of berries.
  • To assemble, place the strawberry pastry on top of the raspberry pastry then top with one of the remaining plain pastry pieces.
  • Place a spoonful of the blueberry sauce over each one and add more whipped cream if desired.

Notes

Tips and Techniques

  • You can make the blueberry sauce ahead of time. This allows it to have more time to cool before you use it.
  • Be sure to prick the puff pastry squares with a fork before baking to keep them from puffing up.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within a day or 2 for best results.
