If you’re looking for a simple and easy to make dessert recipe, you’ve come to the right place. Petit fours are delectable to look at and eat. There are many ways to decorate them, but I’ll tell you the easiest way.
What you`ll need:
125 grams butter
125 grams powder sugar
125 grams flour (I used white flour, though any will do)
For the garnish
a fruit of your choosing (strawberries are best)
How to cook it:
You’ll want to preheat the oven to 180° Celsius. Take a medium sized rectangle baking tin (our measurements are 30 cm length, 20 cm wide, 4 cm deep) and either oil it or butter it up, and then dust some flour on it.
In a bowl, mix the powdered sugar and slightly softened butter into a creamy texture. Next, whilst still mixing, start putting in the eggs one by one, shortly followed by the flour in small increments. Keep mixing until it’s homogenous.
Pour the mixture in your tin and put it in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Use a toothpick to determine if it’s cooked. If there are no bits of mixture on the pick, it’s ready. Take out and cool it.
Meanwhile you can buy whipped cream in a can or make some yourself with whipping cream powder and milk, or cooking cream and powder sugar.
Cut the pastry in little cubes and decorate each one with the cream you made, followed by a strawberry on top.
And voila! You’ve got your gorgeous petit fours.
