This was supper easy and really good. I was looking for a strawberry pie recipe which had the cream cheese layer and found this instead. It is like a strawberry creampuff. My family raved. I also made only half the recipe and it still turned out great!
Along with another recipe, the cream filling never came out the way it said it would.
I personally think that the filling tastes much better in mini-graham crusts (buy in the grocer's baking section). The puff-pastries don't have much flavor. I made half of the filling recipe to fill 8 mini-pies. I pre-baked the shells for 5 minutes after brushing them with an egg white. These are very rich and filling. I thought these were very easy to make, had a cute presentation (with mint-sprigs as garnish) & a nice dessert for entertaining.
I just made and ate one of these strawberry clouds and I have high hopes my guests tonight will like them as much as I did. I found the frozen pastry puffs near the waffles and the brand was peppridge farm. I noticed they make flat sheets as well and a cake of these could be made quite easily. I followed the recipe to a T. I did not alter a thing. They taste great. Light and airy. I was able to eat the whole thing, imagine that. I could have had another to be honest. This is a great summer dessert and we are pairing it with steak and asparagus. I am also serving a guac. dip with chips before hand. Thanks!
WOW!! VERY IMPRESSIVE!! I made these for a small dinner party. Although there are a lot of steps to this recipe, they are all very easy and all can be done ahead. I filled the shells 4 hours ahead of serving and was pleased that they didn’t get soggy. Then to serve, I drizzled the plate with some chocolate syrup, placed the filled shell on the plate, spooned strawberries over including some of the accumulated juices, added another dollop of the cream cheese mixture, topped with the pastry top and a sprig of lemon balm! Beautiful!! I hope the picture I am posting does this justice. Trust me, this one’s a showstopper!! Oh, and very yummy too! For extra decadence, serve some additional chocolate syrup at the table!
This had a bunch of steps but it came out fabulous. I did not have the puff pastry shells - so I used Dunkin Hines white cake mix to make cupcakes (I prefer it to the yellow cake mix). I did not add the sugar to the strawberries as they were already sweet! I used toffuti cream cheese to keep it non-dairy and added a couple of drops of red food coloring to the cream cheese mixture to make it pink. I followed the instructions of piping the filling and adding the strawberries, and served it right away! It really was a big hit!
Such a tasty light dessert! I had guests when I served it and it was enjoyed by all.
I made the "cloud" portion of this recipe and it was delicious with fresh strawberries! Very easy and simple too. It definitely turned out looking elegant and difficult. :)
