These pastries are quick to fix, thanks to convenient puff pastry! Field editor Kathleen Taugher of East Troy, Wisconsin fills the hearts with a pudding and cream mixture and strawberries.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 package (17-1/4 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups sliced fresh strawberries

  • 2. In a bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. In a mixing bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Beat in confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form. Fold into pudding.
  • 3. Split puff pastry hearts in half. Place bottom halves on serving plates. Spoon 1/4 cup filling over each; top with strawberries and pastry tops. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately. Yield: 12 servings.
