Today I had a whole morning to myself which does not happen often so I baked 🙂
First on the agenda a batch of sweet Paté brisé adapted from a french recipe I have had for years.
Then I made a from scratch creme pattisserie and added the juice of 1/2 an orange which made it taste divine.
Once cooled and thickened I spread it in the cooked paté brisé pastry case and sliced the strawberries for the top. My son Toby and I made the star pattern on top together (My sons were both home from school by this time!)
