Easy Strawberry Shortcake Croissants


  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp Powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp Cream cheese optional, but a delicious addition!
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Bakery fresh croissants
  • A good sharp knife we have this knife set and love it!
  • Hand mixer
  • Shaker for powdered sugar


  • Add your heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar into a bowl and blend well until peaks form.
  • Add in your vanilla extract and beat or whip until well combined.
  • Cut your croissants in half.
  • Slice your strawberries.
  • Fill a piping bag with a frosting tip (if you wish for your whipped cream to be decorative) and pipe the whipped cream onto one sliced side of the croissant.
  • Add sliced strawberries to the top of the whipped cream, fanning them out evenly across, and top with the other side of the croissant.
  • Sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
  • For the decorative croissants with a “Santa hat” on top, slice the top of the strawberry off, frost the cut end of the strawberry with a little extra whipped cream and place it on top of the croissants.
  • Pipe a little whipped cream on top for the wooly top to the “hat” and serve.
