Strawberry feuilleté

Strawberry feuilleté
This elegant French dessert is not quite a tart. The base is a circle of puff pastry baked and caramelized, then topped when cold with a thin layer of lime-flavoured confectioner's custard and beautiful fresh strawberries.

Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 30 min.
Strawberry feuilleté : Photo of step #1

Lime confectioner's custard

Prepare 5 cups Lemon Confectioner's Custard, but using lime rather than the lemon in the original recipe.

When finished, you can add a few drops of green food colouring to the cream if you wish. A slight green tinge looks good against the red of the strawberries.

Stage 2

Prepare a "feuilletage" with 2 23 cups Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) and 23 cup caster sugar, as shown here.

Stage 3 - 3 min.

Once the puff pastry base is cold, spread the lime confectioner's custard evenly over the top, if possible with a palette knife.

Stage 4 - 10 min.

Arrange the strawberries on top of the custard, allowing your artistic side to express itself...

...and finish with a sprig of fresh mint.


It might not look like it, but this recipe is quite technical and does require a certain amount of know-how, especially to cook the puff pastry base perfectly.

Once you have got the hang of it, you can use your imagination to create as many different versions as you like using different creams and fruit.

Crème brûlée (burned cream) is quite easy to prepare: it's a simple egg-cream dessert. The only difficulty is in making the delicious crunchy caramel layer on top. The perfect crème brulée (for me) is a cold and soft cream, with on top a nice hot caramel crust. This is a completely new version...
