Cream Slices Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 8

225 g/8 oz puff pastry (paste), thawed, if frozen
300 ml double (heavy) cream
90 ml/6 tbsp strawberry jam (conserve)

225 g/8 oz icing (confectioners') sugar
30 ml/2 tbsp water
4 glace (candied) cherries, halved
16 angelica leaves

Method:

Roll out the pastry to a 40 x 10 cm/ 16 x 4 in rectangle. Cut into eight 10 x 5 cm/4 x 2 in pieces. Place on a dampened baking (cookie) sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 230C/450F/gas mark 8 for 10 minutes or until risen, golden and puffy. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


When cold, slit horizontally into halves. Whip the cream until stiff. Sandwich the slices back together with the jam and whipped cream. Place on the wire rack. Blend the icing sugar with the water until smooth. Spread over the tops and decorate each with half a glace cherry and two angelica leaves.
