Okay, I promise this is the last puff pastry recipe for awhile. But I’ve saved the best for last, as this was beyond delicious. All this started because CristaBear requested a very specific dessert for her birthday party: layers of phyllo with strawberries, whipped cream and powdered sugar. Of course, me being me, I had to deviate slightly. I knew that whipped cream wouldn’t hold up for very long and would separate. So I made a whipped mascarpone cream, which is absolutely delicious. It tastes like a thicker, more flavorful whipped cream. Winter strawberries are a little sad, so they are doctored up with some sugar and lemon. Finally, I substituted puff pastry for phyllo because I knew it would be easier to work with.

I made two variations on this. For Crista’s birthday, I made strawberry Napoleons. Sadly, I only have one photo of them because my camera punked out and it is from my camera phone. They don’t look too great, but they were delicious and very pretty looking.

Because had I had tons of leftover cream and strawberries, I made a flat tart version which was just as delicious, if not as impressive looking. The recipe for the flat tart is below, as I have to admit it is much much easier than putting together Napoleons that constantly were trying to tip over (I was a little overambitious and made them slightly too tall). Either way, strawberries on cream on puff pastry is irresistible.

Mmmm…this is my favorite pie.  I adore rhubarb and am constantly trying to find more recipes with it.  This pie is very juicy, sweet and summer-y. I make it with a lattice crust to complete the summer look.
