With very few ingredients, you can make these impressive pastries!
- 1/2 pkg. frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed (1 sheet)
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds, divided
- 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1 container (8 oz.) sour cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 tsp. almond extract
- 1-1/2 cups whipped cream
- 12 large strawberries, sliced
- Orange zest
Cut dough lengthwise into three strips; cut strips crosswise into four squares for a total of 12 squares. Gently separate squares evenly over surface of pan. Bake 16-18 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from pan onto cooling rack.
Meanwhile, place remaining almonds into a small saucepan and cook over medium-high heat 2-3 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool. Coarsely chop.
Whisk sour cream, powdered sugar and almond extract in a medium bowl. Fold in whipped cream. Slice strawberries. Split open each pastry square; arrange half of the strawberries into bottom of each shell. Top with about 2 heaping tablespoons of the filling and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Top with remaining strawberries. Zest orange over strawberries. Place tops of pastry shells over filling. Serve immediately.
These are dainty and delectable~Adapted from The Pampered Chef
Cooks Tip: If not serving immediately, fill right before serving. Sliced peaches can be substitued for the strawberries.
