Strawberry Pastries - Valentines dessert - Dessert - Easy Dessert - Easy Pastries

These dreamy looking Strawberry Cream Pastries are so quick and easy to make. Not to mention the delicious, and very popular, cream filling.

This is perfect to serve on Valentines Day and the golden, flaky Pastry with the simple, yet divine, Strawberry Cream Filling, work together fantastically.

You can bake the Pastry in advance and keep in a sealed container until close to serving time. The Filling for these Strawberry Cream Pastries, is also very quick to make, but keep in mind that the mixture sets, or rather thickens, quite quickly.

Have your baked Pastries ready when you start with the filling, because by the time the fresh Strawberries are stirred into the creamy pudding mixture, it will already start to set.

Fortunately, because of the quick setting, the baked Pastries will not get soggy and if kept in the refrigerator, it will keep well for 2 – 3 hours {maybe longer, but I have never made them that far in advance}.

The final touches can be left for last as it only takes an extra 3 – 4 minutes to dust with Icing Sugar, arrange some Strawberry slices and a Mint leaf or 2 on top of the Strawberry Cream Pastries.
