An old recipe that my mum used to make for Sunday tea in the summer. This recipe was resurrected when we moved to Thailand at the request of the Expats and a firm favourite in our bar/restaurant the place as it turned out where many recipes both new and old were sampled and requested.
A pack of frozen puff pastry and yes I could make my own but frozen is good and something I don’t use often so frozen it is…
A pot of fresh cream, whipped.
Icing Sugar to finish.
To make just thaw your puff pastry and roll out.
Cut into rectangles.
Put on a baking tray and put in a pre-heated oven on 200C.
Bake until well risen and golden.
Remove from oven onto a wire cooling rack.
When cool split the pastries in half spread with the jam and then the cream.
To finish sprinkle icing sugar over the top.
Chill in fridge until required although mine never seemed to get as far as the fridge. lol
About Carol Taylor:
Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.
I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.
Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.
Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!
