A Few Simple Ingredients, Makes A Magical Dessert!
Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes

4 cups strawberries, sliced
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp raw sugar
1 package puff pastry dough, thawed
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 vanilla bean
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Cooking Tools

2 large mixing bowls
Parchment lined sheet pan
Hand mixer

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.  Unwrap puff pastry dough, cut along seams then cut in half going the opposite direction.  All together, you will have 12 rectangles.  Sprinkle 4 of the rectangles with the raw sugar and bake in oven for 20-25 minutes.
In a mixing bow, add; strawberries and 1 cup of regular sugar, mix and set aside to melt the sugar.  In another mixing bowl, add; 1 pint of heavy cream and vanilla extract.  With a knife, cut along length wise of the vanilla bean and scrape all the vanilla from the inside and place in bowl with the cream.  Whip on high with a hand mixer until a soft whip.  Put in powdered sugar and whip until whipped peaks are formed.  Cool baked puffed pastry before adding the whipped Chantilly Cream and strawberries.  If the puff pastries puff too high, you can slice in half.  Layer puff pastries, whipped Chantilly Cream and strawberries as high as you want.  Top off with the last puff pastry with the raw sugar.
Yields 4-6
