  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Combine pudding mix and cold milk; fold in whipped topping. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Unfold pastry on a cool, lightly floured surface. Cut into 3 strips along fold marks, then cut each strip into four equal pieces. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet, and cool.
  4. Split pastries into 2 layers, setting the 8 best looking tops aside. Spread 8 bottom layers with dollops of the pudding mixture. Top each with a layer of strawberries, a small amount of pudding, and another pastry layer. (A small amount of the pudding mix on top of the berries will help keep the layers together.) Spread with remaining pudding mixture and strawberries, and top with remaining pastry layers (the best looking ones). Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.

This was a total delish treat, hands down...but I may have not understood the last step I ended up splitting each 12 portions in half any way and stacking the way I thought it should be...Only p...

I've had this recipes for years. I also use real whipped cream and add 1/4 tsp. almond extract to the pudding/cream mixture. Makes a great presentation!

This recipe is really easy and really tasty - it doesn't get much better than that. I was asked to bring dessert last minute, so I needed something really quick to put together, and this was mi...

Super easy and very delicious napoleons. I served these at a party and everyone raved and raved. But even after using real whipped cream, we still felt the taste of the filling was too artific...

Honestly, this has become our absolutely favorite dessert . . . the entire family went completely nuts over this. It's perfectly wonderful as is, but we have also experimented a bit, preferring...
