My husband is strange.

Oh wait. Do I need to explain myself?

Okay. Here it is. The man won’t eat anything creamy. Nothing with cream cheese, yogurt, sour cream, mayo. Basically, my favorite food group: “white goopy stuff”.

Seriously, it’s maddening. No casseroles get consumed by him. He eats bread and butter while the rest of us devour a creamy, cheesy, goopy dinner.

His ONE exception to the rule? Cheesecake. Dude, seriously, if goopy cream cheese offends you, how can you possibly love cheesecake? Especially his MOM’s no bake cheesecake. (which reminds me, I need to share that recipe soon!!).

The filling of this Napoleon is based off his mother’s delicious no bake cheesecake recipe. It’s creamy. It’s goopy. It’s just how his momma makes it. And he loves momma’s cheesecake.

Creating a spring recipe for Fisher’s was fun! It only made sense to do an easy treat! Once you bake up the puff pastry, you can pile it high with creamy, fluffy no bake cheesecake filling. Add fresh berries (I used strawberries…but blueberries, raspberries and blackberries would be wonderful too)! And of course, adding the Fisher’s Sliced Almonds on top was the perfect finishing touch.

I love the crunch the almonds give to this dessert. Plus they make a simple treat look classy and elegant. Right?

Classy and elegant, two things that do NOT describe me, haha! However, this dessert is perfect when entertaining family and friends this holiday! These are great when eaten immediately after assembling. But guess what? I did an experiment and allowed (yes, allowed, as in didn’t let anyone TOUCH it) one to sit overnight in the fridge.

The result? It was still perfect. The puff pastry softened slightly, but the taste was absolutely yummy. I hope you give this recipe a try next time you need a classy dessert but don’t want to slave away in the kitchen!

Strawberry Cheesecake Napoleons

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 11 minutes

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup Fisher's Sliced Almonds
  • 1/4 milk chocolate, melted
  • powdered sugar, optional

Instructions

  1. Thaw puff pastry according to package directions. When ready to use, unfold and cut along seams, creating 3 long strips. Cut each strip in half, creating 6 rectangles.

Drizzle melted chocolate over each Napoleon and immediately sprinkle with Fisher's Sliced Almonds. Serve immediately or refrigerate.

You are right…the man is crazy!!! Sorry Michael ;-) My hubby doesn’t do the mayo goop either, but I think the others are ok with him. This is definitely one fancy looking dessert, but I love how easy it is to put together. It’s perfect for those hot summer days that are coming!

I love how you start off the post with My husband is strange. LOL Totally made me giggle. In his defense though… I don’t like anything creamy as a condiment. No mayo, mustard or anything gooey on tacos or sandwiches or hotdogs or burgers. Ewwwww! lol So, he’s not alone in his hate for creamy goo. lol

I know you all think I’m weird and my lovely wife’s talents are totally wasted on my, but in my defense (and in defense of us non-goopy people everywhere), I can trace back my roots of goopy aversion to the video below.
