Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 roll puff pastry
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 500 g fresh strawberries quartered
  • 6 tbsp strawberry jam

Crème Pâtissière

  • 250 g ready-made custard
  • 500 g fresh cream
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
  • Icing sugar


  • Preheat oven to 180℃ and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  • Roll out puff pastry sheet, cut into 12 rectangles and place on baking tray, glaze with egg wash. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minute until golden brown. Remove to wire rack, allow to cool completely and dust with icing sugar.
  • In a large bowl, toss the strawberries with 1 tbsp caster sugar and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • In another bowl, beat the cream until it begins to thicken, and gently stir in pre-made custard and vanilla paste.
  • To assemble, lay a piece of puff pastry and spread with strawberry jam and arrange sliced strawberries and pipe or spread over custard filling, top with another piece of pastry and repeat these 2 more times, having 3 layers in total.


Take the pastry out of the fridge 1 hour before preparing, as it will be easier to roll.
You can prepare pastry ahead of time and store in an air-tight container.
