Place another sheet of dough on top of the other and repeat process 5 times. Cut the pastry in a long, 1-inch width triangle, place it on a silpat or a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle crumbled Stilton. Allow to cool on a wire rack. To serve, slice the peaches in half and remove the pit. Place peaches in center of 4 plates, scoop strawberry salad and place on top of peaches.
