I feel like I’ve become increasingly lazy lately. Maybe it’s just because it’s the summer and anything that requires my attention for more than 30 minutes is way to much to ask of someone still trying to catch up on Orange is the New Black. 

At least I have my priorities straight. 

No but really, if I’m in a hurry to get breakfast on the table or whip up some snacks for my little sister and her friends, odds are I’m not going to spend hours in the kitchen making something extravagant. That’s why these Peaches and Cream Pastries are so perfect! They TASTE like I was slaving away in the kitchen for hours but in all honesty it took me maybe 10 minutes to put it all together and pop it in the oven.

These Strawberries and Cream Pastries are sure to be a new family favorite! Made with 5 simple ingredients, it couldn't be easier to put together these gorgeous pastries.

The first time I made these Strawberries and cream Pastries was when I made Sunday morning brunch before having a family day at the lake and I went all out—breakfast casserole, sausage, eggs, biscuits, and the best gravy you will ever taste. Needless to say, everyone pretty much inhaled everything! Toward the end of the meal, the kids started looking at me, expecting something sweet since I had only prepared savory items. I swear these kids are bottomless pits so of course, I said, “yeah, no problem.” 

But to be honest I had no idea what I was about to make! I only had 30 minutes to whip something up before we were headed out to the lake, so I knew I probably wouldn’t be able to swing muffins or anything like that so I whipped out a recipe my mother showed me how to make as a kid.

I knew the process from prepping the ingredients, to these gorgeous strawberries and cream pastries being in your tummy would only take 20 minutes. So I grabbed the puff pastry and other ingredients, followed the super simple recipe, and within minutes the kids had gobbled them down. We left the house with plenty of time to spare!
