Make the most of your fresh berries. With layers of delicate, flaky puff pastry combined with a cream custard, Berry Napoleons are a treat everyone will enjoy.
Use a cooling rack to make sure your puff pastry only rises to a uniform height. It also makes a gorgeous grid on the top of the pastry.
The beauty of the pastry cream is in its versatility. You can fold in whipped cream, mascarpone, creme fraiche, or sour cream to change the flavor and lighten up the custard. Also, you can use a variety of berries, or even canned fruits like peaches, honey-soaked apricots, or morello cherries.
