Prep Time: 10 min   Total Time:10 min   Servings: 2


15 ounce package frozen pie crust, thawed
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar
Chocolate syrup for garnish
2 mint sprigs


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Roll crust to 1/16-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut 6 hearts or any shape you desire. Place on a parchment lined sheet pan or Silpat and bake 4 to 8 minutes or until lightly brown.

Whip heavy cream with granulated sugar to soft peaks.

Arrange one heart on each plate, add a small amount of whipped cream and sliced strawberries. Continue building the Napoleon until each plate has 3 hearts with whipped cream and strawberries between. Dust tops with powdered sugar; plates with chocolate syrup, strawberry fans, mint sprigs and serve.

Wine recommendation: Champagne
