I’m pretending it’s summer

Yeah with the strawberries I got from the flea market @ the curve, and few tips from Bernie, here it goes.

- puff pastry

- mascarpone cheese

- heavy cream

- sugar

- lemon zest

- vanilla essence

A 3 simple step:

Step 1: Roll the puff pastry thinly and lay e’m on a baking tray. Poke randomly with a fork. Pop it into a pre-heated oven on 210’c for about 20 minutes or till golden crisp. Let it rest on the cooling rack.

Step 2: Whip the heavy cream with sugar still it’s whipped up and fold in the mascarpone cheese, add in zest from a lemon and vanilla essence. Spread  the cream onto the pastry once it has cool down.

Step 3: Lay those strawberries and some icing sugar. And EAT.IMG_2865

yin: sorry la the while this habis by the same evening. DUnch worry you're always in my call list whenever i cook ma !

Nic: I'm pretending we have four seasons, so i appreciate summer fruits more ! haha.

aaron: Nope those are fresh strawberries. The only baking was the puff pastry part. Only spread the cream past once it's cool. And arrange the strawberry ontop of the cream. A good dash of icing sugar on top would help to bind/caramelize/glaze the berries.
Good luck.
