Easy but Impressive Tea Time Snack
I wish that this country had tea time. Sausage Von Trapp and I sometimes have afternoon coffee or tea over conversation (or more truthfully, a gossip session, one of my guilty pleasures) and it just seems like a wonderful, relaxing time. This little snack is very quick and easy and blows people away when you serve it for dessert, but especially at tea time.
1 sheet of puff pastry (in the freezer section near the pie shells)
1 bag of frozen berries, thawed, your preference
1 can of whipped cream
Preheat oven to 400
Grease a cookie sheet. Allow puff pastry sheet to thaw for 30 minutes. Roll out carefully and cut into squares, approximately 9. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle liberally with sugar. Bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes.
Sweeten berries with sugar if desired. Place pastry on individual serving plate. Place approximately 1/4 cup berries on and around pastry and top with whipped cream.
Squirt orange food coloring on it if you're mad because this isn't a strictly Hallowe'en post.
