Berry Shortcakes

Berries.  Our family loves berries.  We whipped up this summertime treat for daddy and he had seconds.  (a rarity) This is a fool proof easy way to enjoy the seasons best.


1 package frozen puff pastry dough
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar

2 cups of sliced strawberries, raspberries
(you can also include blueberries)

1 pint whipping cream
3 tablespoons confectionary sugar

Set dough out to thaw for 30 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees.Roll out pastry dough onto flat surface.  Use a cookie cutter to cut dough into pieces.  Place cut outs onto a foil lined cookie sheet.  Brush the tops of the cut out pastry with melted butter.
Lightly sprinkle sugar over the pastry pieces.
Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

Pour cold whipping cream into a bowl.  Mix at a
high speed, add in two tablespoons of confectionary
sugar. Beat until consistency is dense.

Split one baked pastry piece in half.  Plate bottom half.
Add whipping cream on top.  Layer berries
and place the pastry half on. Dust with confectionary
