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
melted butter
granulated sugar

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.

Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I agree. The US needs to learn how to take some time out each day to chill and enjoy a tasty treat or two.
(loved the last line of this post - heh!)

It's really sad that people are running to get where they're going which is somewhere not seen and miss where they are and the things happening around them which is life.

Wait, did I write that? That sounded almost philosophical. I are smart sometimes now!

Tea time....I love tea time. The UK has it right...London is a cray city, but they do know how to take their down time and their holidays. We could learn much from them. Or as my master plan states, I could just move :)

Thanks for sharing!!!
