Berry Napoleons

This dessert is so easy to make, yet super delicious.  It is a great dessert for a party due to the ability to make the components ahead of time and assemble it right before you are ready to serve it.  I found the idea for this great recipe here and adapted it to serve 12.

Berry Napoleons

2 boxes puff pastry
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1 pint of strawberries, quartered
1 pint of blueberries
1 pint of blackberries
2 tablespoons brown sugar
whipped cream
1 jar lemon curd
Powdered sugar for dusting

Thaw and cut each sheet of puff pastry into 9 squares.  Mix egg and water and brush onto squares.  Bake according to package directions.  Split each square in half.

In a medium bowl, combine strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries with brown sugar and allow to form juice.  (You will need to do this a few hours before preparing the dessert.)

To prepare the Napoleons--Put a small amount of lemon curd on the plate (this will keep the Napoleon from sliding around) and place half of the pastry on top.  Spread lemon curd on the pastry and then a small amount teaspoon of the whipping cream.  Spoon a small amount of the berries in juice over the whipped cream.  Top with a piece of pastry and repeat each step twice.  Top last piece of pastry with berries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar.

Enjoy,
