Day Four – 30 Days of Creativity

Today I had to make puddings for a birthday barbecue that I’m going to. As it’s June I decided to work with a strawberry theme:


So I thought I’d try out a recipe I’ve got for strawberry and almond tarts. The original recipe creates four large tarts but I thought as barbecues are fairly informal affairs that I’d create mini tartlets that people could just pick up and eat.

They don’t look quite as pretty once they’re cooked, but they taste *amazing*. Puff pastry + marzipan + strawberries = WIN.

I also made some strawberry samosas, but since their delicious content is concealed by an unassuming pastry jacket they’re not very exciting to look at:

Hopefully everyone will enjoy them. I’ll report back!
