Don’t Rush to Throw Away the Egg Trays! The Perfect Puff Pastry Dessert
Egg trays are often seen as disposable items, but they can be used for much more than just storing eggs. In fact, they can be used to make a delicious and easy puff pastry dessert. This dessert is perfect for any occasion, from a family dinner to a special occasion. It is also a great way to use up any leftover egg trays that you may have lying around.
The first step in making this puff pastry dessert is to preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, take your egg trays and line them with parchment paper. This will help to prevent the pastry from sticking to the trays. Once the trays are lined, you can begin to assemble the puff pastry.
Start by taking a sheet of puff pastry and cutting it into four equal pieces. Place one piece of pastry in each of the egg trays. Then, spread a thin layer of butter over the pastry. This will help to give the pastry a nice golden color when it is baked.
Next, take a bowl and mix together some sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle this mixture over the pastry in the egg trays. Then, take some fresh fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries, and place them on top of the pastry. Finally, take some more puff pastry and cut it into four equal pieces. Place these pieces on top of the fruit and press down lightly.
Once the pastry is assembled, place the egg trays in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes. The pastry should be golden brown and the fruit should be bubbling. Once the pastry is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
Once the pastry has cooled, you can serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. This puff pastry dessert is sure to be a hit with everyone. It is a great way to use up any leftover egg trays and it is also a delicious and easy dessert to make.
