Strawberry Napoleons


Strawberry Napoleons

There's nothing like enjoying a sweet dessert recipes after a hearty dinner. This stunning dessert tastes as good as it looks! All it takes is one sheet of puff pastry, sliced strawberries and a very easy-to-make vanilla mousse.


Preparation Time25 min

Cooking Time15 min


  • All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 (17.3-ounces) package Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets
  • 1 package (about 3.5 ounces) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped or 2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cup cups of fresh or frozen sliced strawberries


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.

  3. Sprinkle the work surface with the flour. Unfold the pastry sheet onto the floured surface. Cut the pastry sheet into 3 strips along the fold marks. Place the pastry strips onto the prepared baking sheets.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks for 10 minutes. Split the pastries into 2 layers, making 6 layers in all.

  5. Prepare the pudding mix according to the package directions with 1 cup milk in a large bowl. Fold in the whipped cream.

  6. Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes. To make icing, stir the confectioners’ sugar and 2 teaspoons milk in a small bowl.

  7. Spread the icing on 2 top pastry layers. Spread 3/4 cup pudding mixture on 4 pastry layers.

  8. Top each with about 1/3 cup strawberries. Stack 1 strawberry-topped layer onto a second one to make 2 stacks. Top each stack with an iced pastry layer. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.

Can I use wheat flour to make your strawberry Napoleons? I think your recipe sounds like the perfect dessert for a night in with the family. A friendly game of Uno or Rummy and your dessert bars will make our night complete. I love to have something sweet when we play games as a family. The competition can make you hungry for sweets.

I agree, what pudding mix? Is it a large box or small box, instant or cooked? Looks and sound yummy though.
