Step 1

Cream with Rose Syrup:
In a pan, put the milk to boil. Meanwhile, blanch the eggs with the sugar then add the flour. Add half the hot milk and stir vigorously. Put the mixture into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly over medium heat until it has reached a boil.

Step 2

Pour the cream into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the cream so it does not dry. Keep cool at least 1 hour. Take the whipped cream. Smooth the cream cooled to relax, then gently fold the whipped cream and rose syrup. Fill a pastry bag with light cream mixture and reserve.

Step 3

For Pastry: Preheat oven to 400 ° F. Roll out puff pastry, roll it on itself tightly to get a roll. Cut slices about 8mm thick. We must have 3 layers per person

Step 4

Spread each slice of dough with icing sugar. Remove excess icing sugar and place the dough slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. To prevent the dough from puffing up too much, cover with foil and bake for ten minutes. Let cool to room temperature.

Step 5

Strawberries: Wash and hull the strawberries and cut them in two.

Step 6

Assembly: Start with a sheet of dough, put on some strawberries and spoon over cream. Repeat and finish with a sheet of dough. Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
