“Carla’s Strawberry Napoleon”

Another summer favorite, strawberries! With summer winding down, I think it is oh, so important to feature some of our favorite berries while we still can!

I recently saw the clip on The Chew of Carla creating a Strawberry Napoleon and it looked amazing!!!! I really want to make a few of these, hide them from the kids and enjoy them in quiet.
