Here is another fabulous award winning dessert ( if you can pronounce Millefeuille then you deserve an Oscar). It comes from FiFi’s cheat cook book and is a winner for hot summer entertaining because it takes no time at all and you can do it in your bikini. (eat it that is).
1 packet butter puff pastry
2 or 3 punnets of strawberries and/or a mix red berries
I bottle of whipped cream or thick King Island cream (or one that is NOT runny)
Some icing sugar for sprinkling
·Now here’s the trick:
·You are going to bake squares of the pastry then when they have cooled, you will then make a layered sandwich with the pastry and the cream and berries. Easy!
·Hot hint: cook the pastry before your glamourous lunch then assemble it just before serving so it won’t be soggy (even though you may be).
·OK. So preheat the oven to about 180
·Then cut up the big pastry squares into 4
·You need 3 squares for each dessert so you do the maths: Work it out how many you need for your guests. Put away the calculator you can’t be that stupid.
·Moisturize a baking dish with butter or oil and just lie the cut up pastry squares on it and cook for about 10 or 15 mins
·Keep an eye on them… you want them about the colour of Paris Hilton, a slight honey suntan
·Optional: While they are cooking you can whip up a coulis to drizzle over the dessert if you so desire…. just throw some water, sugar and half a punnet of berries in a saucepan and squish them with a fork so they are crushed. Let them cook on a low heat for about 5 or 10 mins or until it looks like you could drizzle it
·Let the coulis cool.
To serve: layer one square of pastry on a plate, dollop a blob· of cream on top, sprinkle with the berries then pile on another pastry square on top of those berries and cream and do the same again, to make a tower of fabulousness
·Then throw a final square on as a lid.
·Drizzle with the coulis and then sprinkle with icing sugar
·WOW! Look at that, it’s world standard!
·What can I say? Another crowd pleaser that takes a mere 10 minutes to whip up and all just to make you the center of attention
