Step by step recipe

Prepare the crisp pastry rectangles

Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).

Cut the sheets of brik or filo into rectangles 16 x 6 cm (4.5 x 2.5 inches). You will need 6 rectangles for each millefeuille.
5 min.

Assemble the millefeuilles


Prepare the strawberries and cut in half lengthways.

Place a pastry rectangle on a serving plate and, using a forcing bag, pipe a layer of chantilly (whipped cream).
2 min.

11 Quick Strawberry Millefeuille : Photo of step #11Make a second layer of cream and fruit... 2 min.
12 Quick Strawberry Millefeuille : Photo of step #12...and finish with the last layer of pastry. Your first millefeuille is now ready. Assemble all the others in the same way.

Serve without delay (see below).
20 min.

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.
