Ready-made puff pastry (or make your own!)
Fresh strawberries, or any berries for that matter. Mixed berries can look just as beautiful
A sprinkling of white sugar
A dusting of icing sugar
A nice spoonful of crème fraiche or whipped cream per serving.
Preheat oven to 200ºC and place some baking paper onto your baking sheet.
Any shapes would do, but I cut two 7cm diameter circles and then cut a heart-shape out of these with a cookie cutter
Brush with milk and sprinkle with a little white sugar – to brown more easily and taste more interesting.
Lift onto the baking sheet and bake till golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Prepare your strawberries (rinse, hull and halve them), pack into a pretty dish (be adventurous – you could even serve this on a slate tile) and dust with icing sugar to taste.
Add crème fraiche and puff pastry, with a whole strawberry as garnish and serve! Don’t forget to take a picture J
