This peach and raspberry dessert is really quick and simple. Indeed it’s one of those desserts that has us both wondering “why don’t I make this more often?” As with all foodies I’m prone to pick up food items with the thought “I could do something with those!” For example a jar of peaches in brandy bought in December, it’s now July! Though I love peaches, they’ve sadly sat in my cupboard for months.
Nevertheless, I came across the jar last week and promptly handed it to Michelle with a request that she create a nice pudding. That’s why we work well as a blogging duo, we know where our strengths lie. I know which of us is going to put up the better dessert, clearly it’s the one with the sweeter tooth. Michelle’s creativity definitely lies in the sweeter side of life, this can be seen in the numerous fabulous desserts and cakes I’ve enjoyed over the years. I’m delighted to say the dessert she created here is no exception, I was not disappointed.
So on a beautiful sunny day last week Michelle turned up to mine with a box of puff pastry sheets, pre-cooked and ready to work with. My glee when she said we were having peach and raspberry mille feuille. Moreover I was happy to see how she’d pared down the recipe, simplifying it for the most basic baker.
Previously this would have been a dessert I’d have avoided. Pastry making is simply not my thing, consequently I often avoid recipes where I’ve to make my own. However, Michelle, inspired by this months BBC Good Food Magazine, kept this simple and used a sheet of ready made puff pastry. So after combining the cream mixture, piping it between the sheets of pastry and adding the fruit, our dessert was ready.
