Yield: 12 pastries


Equipment:

Parchment Paper

Baking Sheet

Hand Mixer

Piping Bag

Sifter


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Bake Time: 8-10 minutes


Ingredients:



1 refrigerated box of puff pastry sheets

1 egg, for egg wash


Whipped Cream

1 ½ cups heavy cream

½ cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Strawberry Topping

6 Strawberries, diced small

¼ cup white granulated sugar

¼ cup water

½ teaspoon cornstarch


Topping

Powdered Sugar, sifted


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a bunny cookie cutter to cut out as many bunnies as you can in each sheet. Place on a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper, fitting only 8 on each sheet.

  2. Make an egg wash by whisking one egg in a small bowl. Use a pastry brush to add egg wash to each puff pastry dough slice.

  3. Bake these for 8-10 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the pastry bunnies have puffed up.

  4. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

  5. While those are cooling make the strawberry topping.

  6. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the sliced strawberries, white sugar, water and cornstarch all at once. Stir together over the heat and let the mixture come to low boil. Remove from the heat when the strawberry sauce thickens.

  7. In a medium sized bowl, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla.

  8. Blend with a hand mixer until a thick cream is formed with peaks.

  9. Transfer to a piping bag with or without a fitted tip.

  10. Now that the bunny pastries are cooled, slice each in half to create a sandwich.

  11. Spread a small amount of just the strawberry sauce along the bottom half of the puff pastry.

  12. Then fill by piping a thick layer of the whipped cream inside. Top with some strawberries and strawberry sauce.

  13. Finish with the top half of the bunny puff pastry and sift with powdered sugar.

  14. Serve and enjoy!






Notes:

●       These are best eaten the day of or they will become soggy quick due to the strawberry sauce. The whipping cream and strawberry sauce can be made and stored in the fridge, but I recommend that the puff pastry is cooked and served in the same day.
