      Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Using small round cookie cutters, cut out circles from the puff pastry that are slightly larger than the widest part of your strawberries. Arrange them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

      Pinch off pieces of the almond paste and flatten them into rounds the size of the base of your strawberries. Lay the almond paste coins on the center of the puff pasty circles and top each with a single berry, pressing down lightly. Sprinkle each berry with a pinch of granulated sugar.
