I had purchased a bag of large, delicious croissants from my bakery but only used half in preparing chicken salad croissants. Thinking of what I could do with the rest, it occurred to me how wonderful the sweet fruit in the chicken salad paired with the slightly salty croissant.
I was getting ready to bake the base for my strawberry shortcake when I spied the bag of croissants on the counter... and the rest is history.
My family absolutely loved the change and asked me to prepare them like this from now on. Once plated, top with additional whipped cream and confectioners' sugar.

croissants from your local bakery

confectioners' sugar, additional for decorating top
How To Make
Clean, and slice strawberries. Add desired amount of sugar and stir. Let sit on counter at room temp. until they become slightly juicy and sugar dissolves.
Slice a pocket in each croissant, not slicing all the way through. Set aside.
In glass bowl, whip whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add 3 T. of confectioners' sugar gradually and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Beat until stiff peaks form.
Open croissant and add a generous layer of sweetened whipped cream. Top with strawberries. Close croissant slightly and top with additional berries, whipped cream and a dusting of confectioners' sugar.
