I have been a housewife for many years. I like it. I'm not bored and the ironing is the only chore which I hate. Recently, my daughter has been helping me out me with it. So I sit down silently, enjoy my escape from the ironing and I pray she doesn't change her mind
Sometimes I have one of those days when nothing goes right. Today I started from dessert, which broke down before I really started preparing it. I felt that I shouldn't do any serious housework. On such days I can burn even the water for the tea. I was desperate and I looked for a very easy dessert so as not to mess it up. I found it at www.mojewypieki.com. This dessert was the only thing which went well. Even though these cookies with French pastry look inconspicuous, they are excellent. Thin, light, crunchy and not too sweet. You have to try them.
Ingredients (8 cookies)
1 pack of French pastry
8 teaspoons of apricot jam
1 tablespoon of milk
Heat the oven up to 200C (with convection). Cover a baking sheet with some baking paper.
Cut 8 circles out of the French pastry. Spread the circles with some of the apricot jam leaving a 1-cm edge. Wash the strawberries, remove the shanks and slice them. Arrange the strawberry slices on the jam. Spread the edge with some milk. Put the circles onto the baking paper. Bake for 15 minutes. Sprinkle the hot cookies with the chocolate drops and the caster sugar.
Enjoy your meal!
