      4 tb Powdered sugar

MMMMM----------------------VANILLA CUSTARD---------------------------
      1    Vanilla bean
      1 c  Half-and-half
      3    Egg yolks
      2 tb Granulated sugar
    1/2 c  Whipping cream
  1. Roll each sheet of dough out to about 12-by-6 inches. If desired,

  Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 3. Bake dough at 425 for about 5 minutes.

  pastries are light, golden and puffed. Let cool on wire rack. 4.
  Split vanilla bean open lengthwise. Place in a heavy saucepan. Add
  half-and-half. Bring to a boil. Cook over medium-low heat for about
  10 minutes. Remove vanilla bean. 5. In a bowl, beat egg yolks and
  sugar until smooth and creamy. Add a little hot half-and-half,
  whisking. Pour this mixture back into saucepan. Bring to a boil,
  whisking constantly until thick and creamy. Do not boil or custard
  will curdle. 6. Remove custard sauce from heat. Beat until smooth.
  Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add to vanilla custard. Spread over
  half of the baked pastries. Cover with sliced strawberries. Top with
  second half of pastries. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve.
