Flaky & buttery puff pastry filled with fresh whipped cream, sweet strawberries, and topped with a dusting of powdered sugar.
Valentine’s might be four days away but that does not mean you can’t enjoy a date night at home with your significant other tonight. When you are a parent of young kids, sometimes those type of dates are your only choice. For us, we often celebrate holidays and milestones after the kids are tucked away in bed. That is why today I wanted to share these Strawberry Cream Puffs.
How to Make Strawberry Cream Puffs
No dinner is complete without a tasty dessert. These Strawberry Cream Puffs were mighty yummy too! These were also easy to make!
Here is how to make my version of Strawberry Cream Puffs:
- Heavy whipping cream- 8 ounces
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar + 1 tablespoon
- 1 package of puff pastry Room temp *according to package instructions
- Heart-shaped cookie cutter *optional- can also just cut them into squares
- 1 cup Sliced fresh strawberries
Preheat oven to the temperature required by your puff pastry packaging.
In a large bowl add the heavy cream, extract, and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.
Mix on high for 3-5 minutes until stiff peaks form in the cream.
Place cream in the fridge.
Cut out your puff pastry hearts, or slice them into even rectangles
Bake according to puff pastry package instructions.
Allow to cool for 5 mins and then slice them in half.
Layer 3 strawberries on one half of each shell, pipe with cream.
Finish off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, and you have a tasty dessert.

This is such a great idea! I might have to send this post to my husband because I’m constantly trying to get him to cook dinner for me. (The last time he cooked for me was before we were married!) LOL.
I love that this is simple with very little clean up and is totally something he can make on his own without destroying my kitchen!

These Strawberry Cream Puffs are so cute! My family will surely enjoy these!
Everything here looks great. Those cream puffs look amazing! I need to make those. I know my girls would love them for Valentine’s Day.
The mason jar with the lights is a cute idea. No need to worry about anything catching on fire during a romantic night. All that food looks delicious especially your strawberry cream puffs.

How many oz of puff pastry dough?
Hi, it is one package. I am not sure of the ounces of the full package.

Do you only get 4 hearts from each sheet of puff pastry? Do you double the puff pastry? Thank you?
