Easy Strawberry Croissant Recipe with Whipped Cream

Ingredients you’ll need for this Strawberry Croissants

This recipe uses simple ingredients, found in many grocery stores:

  • Mini croissants. You can either use store-bought croissants, buy crescent dough or puff pastry sheets, or use your favorite recipe to make homemade croissants from scratch. Their golden brown exterior provides a satisfying crunch, creating the perfect texture contrast with the soft and fruity interior.
  • Heavy whipping cream. The heavy cream is key for the creamy whipped topping. When whipped correctly, it creates a super soft and creamy addition to your buttery croissants.
  • Granulated sugar. Sweetens the whipped cream. Its sweetness balances the tartness of the strawberries, creating a tasty mix.
  • Vanilla extract. Vanilla extract adds a subtle but necessary layer of flavor to the whipped cream. Its aromatic and warm notes complement the sweetness, giving the dessert a well-rounded taste. 
  • Strawberry slices. Fresh strawberry slices add a burst of fruity goodness to every bite. They’re juicy and make a refreshing combo with the croissants. 
  • Strawberry jam. Adding strawberry jam is a great way to enhance the strawberry flavor and contribute a textured layer to the croissant.
  • Powdered sugar. For dusting the top of your croissants.

How to make this Easy Strawberry Croissant Recipe with Whipped Cream

To whip up these tasty croissants, begin by preparing the whipped cream.

In a small bowl, use an electric mixer with the whipping attachment to beat together the cream, sugar, and vanilla extract at high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer the whipped cream into a piping bag with a 1A Wilton tip and set it aside.

Next, cut the fresh croissants in half (from the side), spread strawberry jam as the initial layer, pipe dollops of whipped cream over the jam, and place the tangy strawberries on top of the whipped cream.

Finish off by dusting the croissant tops with powdered sugar and serve immediately.

Expert tips for making the most delicious croissants

  • Ensure that your mixing bowl, beaters, and whipping cream are well-chilled. This helps achieve stiffer peaks when whipping the cream.
  • Whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Do not overbeat, or it might separate.
  • If making your croissants, allow the fresh croissants to come to room temperature before slicing and piping.
  • Choose ripe and fresh strawberries. This enhances the natural sweetness and ensures juicy strawberries, adding a burst of flavor to the croissants.
  • To avoid sogginess, assemble the croissants just before serving for the best flavor and best results. This helps maintain the crispness of the pastry and the freshness of the whipped cream.
  • If you need to store the whipped cream separately, keep it refrigerated in an airtight container. Re-whip before use to restore its fluffy texture.
  • Feel free to experiment with different flavored jams, and fresh fruits or add a hint of citrus zest to the whipped cream for a unique twist. Get creative and tailor the recipe to your taste preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to store any leftover croissants?

Store any leftover croissants in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for up to 1-2 days.

Can I use pre-made whipped cream instead of making it from scratch?

Absolutely! You can use store-bought whipped cream for convenience, but homemade adds a personal touch.

What if I don’t have an electric mixer for whipping the cream?

You can use a hand whisk, but it will require more effort. Ensure the cream is cold for the best results.

Is it necessary to dust the croissants with powdered sugar?

It’s optional, but it adds a touch of sweetness and enhances the presentation.

Can I prepare the croissants in advance for a party?

It’s best to assemble just before serving to maintain the freshness of the croissants and whipped cream.

What other fruits can I use besides strawberries?

Can I freeze the assembled croissants for later?

It’s not recommended as freezing may affect the texture of both the strawberries and the whipped cream. Freeze unfilled croissants instead.

Assemble them just before serving to maintain the crispness of the croissants.
