Berry-lemon Napoleons

Heavens to mergatroid, this is one tasty dessert. I tried two new-to-me things for this: frozen puff pastry and lemon curd. I give both of them a perfect ten. You must make this for those you hold dear.

Berry-Lemon Napoleons

1 box frozen puff pastry
2 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 one small container lemon yogurt
1/2 c. lemon curd
2 C. whipped cream
3/4 C. each fresh raspberries, blueberries, and chopped strawberries
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly coat two cookie sheets with cooking spray. After thawing on countertop for 45 minutes, cut puff pastry into 9 equal squares. Place on cookie sheet, spray dough with cooking spray, and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Bake for 15 minutes, til golden. Meanwhile, stir together lemon yogurt and lemon curd, then fold in whipped cream.

To assemble, place one pastry square on a plate, top with a dollop of lemon cream, add another square, more cream, and sprinkle with berries. Makes 4 and 1/2 desserts if you use two pastry squares per, and 9 if you use only one per.
