How To Make It
  • 1

    Combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mash mixture with a potato masher until the berries are softened and sugar is dissolved.

  • 2

    Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring often to prevent mixture from sticking to pan, until thick, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

  • 3

    Place one sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured, movable, flat surface, such as a lightweight cutting board. Lightly dust surface of pastry with flour and roll to smooth creases.

  • 4

    Spread pastry sheet with 1/3 cup of the strawberry mixture. (Refrigerate any remaining strawberry mixture for up to 5 days.)

  • 5

    Roll the second sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to smooth creases; place on top of first sheet and press down gently.

  • 6

    Place filled puff pastry in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

  • 7

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick silicone mat.

  • 8

    Using a ruler as a guide, cut into pastry into 1 1/2-inch strips. Carefully pick up strips and place on baking sheets, twisting 3 times before laying down.

  • 9

    Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Cool 10 minutes and finish with a dusting of powdered sugar.
