Recipe type: Afternoon treat
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 1 Sheet Puff Pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons of raspberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 2-inch Round Cookie Cutter
  • 2-3 tablespoons of icing sugar
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200Β°C / 190Β°C fan forced.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  3. Using a 2 inch cookie cutter, cut out as many circles as you can get from the pastry sheet. Place rounds on the lined baking sheet.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water together. Brush each circle with egg wash.
  5. Bake circles until puffy and light brown - about 10-12 minutes.
  6. While the rounds are cooling, beat the whipping cream into stiff peaks. Fold in the raspberry jam.
  7. Using a knife, gently cut open the puffs, and fill with whipped cream. Top with other half of pastry. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
  8. Decorate with additional fresh raspberries if desired.
  9. Enjoy!

Let us not forget about that special person now and see if you have done your Mothers Day gift shopping yet? If you still haven’t thought of what to get your special someone then maybe they might like some beautiful teaware. I might just have got a little gift for myself, shhh don’t tell the kids. Can you see that beautiful teaware set in the picture? It’s a Sugar and Creamer Set from the Blush teaware range made by Maxwell & Williams. You can find this teaware set at the Matchbox stores or online atΒ Matchbox.com. They also have a matching cup and saucer set. And the teacup in the picture might also be for me, it’s a Heart Cup and Saucer by Robert Gordon. I couldn’t resist it, as it is formed in a heart on the inside so when you pour your tea or coffee, it forms the shape of a heart. It is very pretty, and it makes you smile when you drink from it. You can find the pretty little cup and saucer here.

Now back to these delicious little bites of sweetness. I stored the leftover Raspberry Cream Puffs on a plate in the fridge. I made these during the day, ate a few while taking photos of them, then put the rest in the fridge. The kids ate them for a treat after dinner, and the pastry was soft but not soggy. They are best to eat on the day of being made and don’t store them in the fridge for any more than a day.

These would be perfect to serve with those Mothers Day gifts. If my kids ask what I would like to have for afternoon tea, I am going to suggest these Raspberry Cream Puffs. I might just set up my special teaware on the table and drop hints. I wonder if that would work, hmmm?
Have you dropped any hints to your family about Mothers Day gifts?

    It’s just a shame I would have to make them for myself for mother’s day!! I can’t see the man tackling something this delicate and sweet. I haven’t dropped any hints, rather I just went out and bought myself what I wanted and told the kids that handmade goodies are all I want for MD!! xx

      Same here Maxabella. It’s just easier to make them yourself. It would take twice as long to explain everything. I was going to go out and buy things that I wanted but the kids really wanted to do it themselves(with dad of course). I have told hubby what I would like and he is going to point them out for the kids. Enjoy your Mothers Day xx

    Made the puffs as a special treat yesterday – so easy to make and light and delicious. Reminded us of our visit to High Tea at the Windsor. Thanks Simone for another great recipe. Janine
