Stage 9 - 2 min.

Arrange a layer of strawberries on top and add a little more cream so that this stands higher than the strawberries (this will help to stick the next layer of pastry).

Stage 10 - 1 min.

Serve without delay (see below).

Remarks

It is always difficult to eat a millefeuille tidily. It tends to resist being cut with a spoon but, as this one has very thin pastry, cutting it is much easier.

You can use other fruits if you prefer (it is just as delicious with raspberries, for example), or even a different cream (confectioner's custard (crème pâtissière, or french pastry cream), chocolate mousse, pistachio cream...).

Millefeuilles do not keep well, as the cream ends up making the pastry soggy. They should be assembled at the last minute and eaten as soon as possible.
