Small Sweetnesses

Twin tiny tarts sit neatly

Upon their small glass plate;

Fresh fruit that ripened sweetly

Has been arranged, ornate–

 

Cold creamy custard, smooth and

Set, and golden pastry crust,

When eaten, leave upon one’s hand

A little sugar dust.

Strawberry-Lemon Profiterole

IMG_20160618_195524160For Father’s day, I made profiteroles, and I filled them with lemon gelato, over which I drizzled strawberry puree. This flavor combination works really well.

To serve it, I sprinkled the pastry shells with powdered sugar and sliced a strawberry to decorate each plate.
