In the US, most of the cheesecakes are made with cream cheese, but Europeans make most of their cheesecakes with fresh farmer’s cheese.
I love the creaminess of the custard filling in a Napoleon dessert, the flakiness of the pastry layers, and the sweetness of the glazed top, accented with dark chocolate.
It was an easy project, thanks to Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry dough, instant pudding mix, my home grown strawberries, and fresh whipped cream.
We are in the midst of the strawberry season in our area, and most other zones will follow very soon.
I have some great recipes to share with you, to help you out with the heaping baskets of strawberries you have been harvesting.
