Happy Valentine’s Day! …and if you’re a teacher or federal employee, happy Presidents Day Weekend!
You know, something they don’t teach you in Teacher School is how flexible you have to be. Between statewide testing (and testing failures), snow days, and other Special Events, I have been scrambling to write and rewrite lesson plans for classes that unexpectedly turn from 45 minutes to 30 minutes… or 100 minutes. Craziness – and very stressful. So hellllooooooooo love… and a three day weekend.
Lesson planning can wait until our free day tomorrow. Until then, let’s celebrate love and good eating with this simple recipe that you can make while holding a nice conversation with your love, friends, or your cat. Whatever floats your boat. 🙂
- 1 sheet pastry puff
- ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla
- chocolate syrup
- Let one sheet of pastry puff thaw while the oven preheats to 400.
- Cut the pastry puff sheet into quarters and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
- Using a cookie cutter (I used a heart), push it through about 90% of the way. Use a fork to punch some holes into the engraved shape.
- Place in the oven for 15 minutes.
- Pour the heavy whipping cream in a medium sized bowl, and throw in the sugar and vanilla.
- Using an electric hand mixer, blend on high until it develops a thick consistency and the peaks become softly firm. Place in a fridge until needed.
- Once the pastry sheets come out of the oven, use a spoon to smash the engraved shape down.
- Spoon whip cream into the hole, and top with blueberries. Drizzle chocolate syrup over it and serve!
