You know how you sometimes would like to make a pretty and impressive dessert but don’t really feel like putting in the time???
Well, look no further. Here is a super easy and a really beautiful dessert that would impress everybody.
Always try to keep some puff pastry in the freezer. It has saved me many times.
If my guests would give me some warning, I defrost it over night in the fridge. If no warning, you can defrost it in the micro wave. Just be careful not do defrost too much so that the puff pastry looses it’s flakiness.
Either you use that every so handy cookie cutter, a regular pastry cutter or why not just a knife, to cut out a preferred shape.
Put your cut out shapes onto a cookie sheet. Parchment paper or silk mat. I love using the silicone silk mats. They are perfect for almost all baking. Things do not stick and they are easy to clean (bonus round right there).
You can make this any time a year. It works for summer just as well as for Christmas, Thanksgiving or any other occasion.
Puff Pastry Berry delicious.
1 package of frozen puff pastry.
Powdered (confectioners’) sugar.
Heavy cream/whipping cream.
Fresh Berries. I used blueberries and raspberries.
Jam. I used a Blueberry jam.
Sprigs of mint for decoration.
Unfold the puff pastry. Cut out any desired she and put them onto a lined cookie sheet.
Brush lightly with an egg wash (wished egg).
Bake in the oven at 400-450 degrees for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool on a rack.
Whip the heavy cream and mix it with a great tasting jam.
When the puff pastry shapes has cooled down, cut them length wise in half. Fill it with the whip cream jam.
Place them on a serving dish. Place berries all around. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
That is actually it super easy.
