what do you associate with strawberries? for me, strawberries are the definition of summer! I instantly think about those relaxed days at the lake, good friends and family around, laughing, swimming, playing games and > eating some yummy strawbs.
so when I thought about baking something for a summer bbq party, I knew strawberries had to be part of it. as I don’t really wanna spend a long time in the kitchen when the sun is shining, I created this absolutely delicious and easiest summer shortcrust pastry EVER.
the ingredients are as simple as that: 3 ¦ 2 ¦ 1 ¦ 1 > like what?!
300g flour – 200g soft butter – 100g sugar – 1 egg >> 3 ¦ 2 ¦ 1 ¦ 1
just combine those ingredients and knead the dough until just combined. let it chill in the fridge for half an hour, then distribute the dough into the prepared (buttered and floured) muffin tin and make sure to poke some holes in it. bake the cups for approx. 15-18 min. then let them cool.
melt 100g of dark chocolate and spread it all over the shortcrust pastry and wait until firm. then prepare the Dr. Oekter Crème Pâttiserie: just mix milk with the powder and mix for 3 mins – easiest thing in the world! distribute the cream and add strawberries or/and raspberries or any other fruit you like – et voilà: shortcrust pastry at it’s finest.
they look absolutely fabulous and everyone loved them!
