Savoury Puff Pastry
This time, again with ready made puff pastry from the supermarket, I made a savoury tart for dinner-Smoked salmon and avocado tart.
It was topped with cheese and baked to golden brown. Delicious.

I was given some homemade durian puree by a friend and wondered how I should use it.
Incidentally, my sister also gave me some durian puffs and they tasted good so I decided to try my hand at choux pastry.

Choux puff shells just out from the oven.

Durian puree piped into the shells.

Completed Durian puffs.

Birthday treat from my daughter

My daughter wanted to bake me a birthday cake, so to make it simple for her, I suggested an easy Tiramisu. I gave her the instructions and she prepared the dessert with me.

 Blueberry Butter Puffs

Bought some ready made puff pastry from the supermarket and prepared this puff tart with blueberries and lemon zest. 
The jam is made from fresh blueberries and sugar.
Quick and tasty; but make sure that the puff pastry is made with butter and not margarine.
