Ingredients
  • 1 sheet (8 ½ oz/245g) store-bought puff pastry (defrosted)
  • 1 recipe homemade pastry cream
  • 2 cups (10oz/284g) fresh sliced fruit and/or berries
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Cut the puff pastry into a 9-inch circle, place on the prepared baking sheet, and bake according to the directions on the package until puffed and golden, about 15-20 minutes. Let cool completely.

  3. Place the baked pastry on a serving plate and press down gently in the center to flatten it slightly, leaving a 1-inch rim.

  4. Spread the pastry cream on the flattened pastry.

  5. Arrange the sliced fruit and/or berries on top of the cream. Serve immediately.
