Made up these lovely strawberry confections at the last minute during the World Cup Finals for friends and family over as I wanted to keep the pastry crunchy. These were gone in a flash and received as much attention as Gidane's notorious head-butt! Great recipe, Jodie.

I made this for the French part of the Tour too - am pleased to find a French desert so low in fat, sugar and calories. *insert sarcasm here* But what can I say, it was great! I made it for our Bible study last night, and it myseriously vanished in a very short space of time. I must confess I didn't quite get the triangles exactly the same size etc and I also added a little extra vanilla to the cream mixture. Thanks for a very nice and suspiciously light-tasting desert!

I made this for the Tour while we were in France. I added just a hint of French Vanilla flavoring to the cream. Very tasty.
