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.
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
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.
