Strawberry Amaretto Pastries - YUMMY!

Strawberry Amaretto Pastries (Recipe from The Pampered Chef ®)

I had a pampered chef party a while ago and we made these - soooooo.... delish!!!


1/2 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry sheets (1 sheet), thawed

1/2 cup sliced almonds, divided

2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided

1 orange

1 container (8 ounces) sour cream

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 1/2 cups thawed, frozen whipped topping

12 large strawberries, sliced

How To Prepare

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Unfold pastry dough onto Large Round Stone. Coarsely grate half of the almonds using Deluxe Cheese Grater. Combine grated almonds and half of the sugar; sprinkle evenly over surface of dough. Lightly press almond mixture into dough using Baker's Roller®.

2. Using Pizza Cutter, cut dough lengthwise into three strips; cut strips crosswise into four squares for a total of 12 squares. Using Mini-Serving Spatula, separate squares evenly over surface of baking stone. Bake 16-18 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from baking stone; cool completely.

3. Place remaining almonds in Small Oval Baker. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring after each 30-second interval; coarsely chop using Food Chopper and set aside. Zest entire orange using Lemon Zester/Scorer. Combine zest and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar; set aside.

4. Whisk sour cream, powdered sugar and almond extract in Classic Batter Bowl using Stainless Whisk. Fold in whipped topping using Small Mix 'N Scraper®. Slice strawberries using Egg Slicer Plus®. Split open each pastry square; arrange half of the strawberries into bottom of each shell. Top each with about 2 heaping tablespoons of the filling and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Top with remaining sliced strawberries and sprinkle with sugared orange zest. Place tops of pastry shells over filling. Serve immediately.

YUM!! Thanks so much for linking these up! I think I even have a little Pampered Chef recipe book that has this one, but I have never made them or tried them. They sound soooo good. I should make them for our ladies Bible study - I think they'd be great for breakfast, don't you?!
