  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  6             sheets  frozen puff pastry -- thawed
     1/4      teaspoon  confectioners' sugar
  2              pints  strawberries -- sliced
                        Vanilla Custard:
  1                     vanilla bean
  1                cup  half-and-half
  3                     egg yolks
  3        tablespoons  sugar
     1/2           cup  heavy cream -- whipped

Preheat oven to 425F. Line baking sheets with waxed paper.

Roll each sheet of dough to a 12 x 6-inch rectangle. Cut each sheet into 4
even pieces. Place dough on prepared sheet; prick with a fork. Sift with
confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Bake for 5 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 450F. Bake for 4 minutes
or until pastries are golden brown and puffed. Let cool on a wire rack.

Spread Vanilla Custard over half the pastries. Cover with sliced
strawberries; top with remaining pastries. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Vanilla Custard:
Split vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Place in a heavy saucepan. Add
half-and-half; bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes; remove vanilla bean.

In a bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add a little
hot half-and-half; whisk until blended. Pour back into saucepan. Bring to a
boil, whisking constantly, until thick and creamy. Remove from heat. Beat
until cool. Fold whipped cream into custard.

Yield: 12 pastries
