Since my oldest daughter, Riley, was itty bitty, she has always loved strawberries.  We went strawberry picking two years ago for the first time {which you can read all about here} and she asks about it all the time.  I’m pretty sure I look forward to it as much as she does though so I can’t blame her.  Last year I made a perfect Strawberry Pie with a secret ingredient that you’ll definitely want to check out.  This year I’m ready with the perfect breakfast or even dessert, a Strawberry Cream Puff Pastry.

Love puff pastries? This a perfect Strawberry Cream Puff Pastry perfect for dessert or breakfast and it comes together quickly.

The great thing about this dessert is because of the Facts Up Front Label I know the important nutritional information.  I am able to make an informed decision about the ingredients I use.  Smucker’s is a partner in the Facts Up Front initiative so there is a label displaying the nutritional information right on the front of the jar.  It’s right there in the lower right hand corner of the label.  You can find out more about the nutritional information displayed, by checking out the information on the  Facts Up Front Interactive Label.

I used Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheets as my puff pastry.  You can definitely use a homemade puff pastry, but I’m all about easy and quick so this worked like a charm for me.  You’ll want to be sure to keep your pastry refrigerated until you’re ready to work with it.  I made my cream and strawberry mixtures before setting up my dough.  I sprayed a cookie sheet with non-stick baking spray, but you could also use non-sticking baking paper.  I then cut my dough in half so that I ended up with two pastries.  Once I had the pastries laid out flat, I used a serrated knife to place two inch cuts along the sides of the dough.  The purpose of this is so that you’re able to braid the pastry around the filling.

I can barely braid my daughter’s hair so this is by no means perfectly braided pastries.  I got the job done though by simply placing one flap over the other, enclosing the filling inside the pastry.

The finishing touch on the pastry was brushing it with an egg wash so that you’re able to get this golden color on the pastry.  Absolutely gorgeous and of course delicious!
