90g icing sugar

4:03 strawberries per person

Heat the cream and saffron in a small pan, turn the heat just before it reaches the boil, allow to cool. Transfer to the refrigerator.

Make cookies: Set the oven at 200C/gas mark 6 power the butter in a small saucepan until it begins to melt .. In a large bowl, mix powdered sugar, egg, flour, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt, then the soft butter. Show generous tablespoon of the mixture on lightly greased baking paper or floured baking sheet sprinkle in the almonds then rolled for about 8 minutes to cook until they have spread and are pale biscuit color. Remove from the oven and transfer with a spatula.

If the cream has cooled, strain through a tea strainer or small sieve to remove the saffron, then whip thick and soft hills, but not so stiff that it will remain in the tips. Stir gently sieved icing sugar 2 tbsp.

Hull and halve the strawberries. Drop-in saffron cream, and then double-click cookies and decay in berries and cream. Serve mixed 15-20 minutes, otherwise your cookies soggy.

More like this crisp Portuguese cream tarts, these little friends are full of rhubarb and vanilla flan.

Before 12
Two short sticks of rhubarb
2-3 tbsp icing sugar
1 orange
300 g puff pastry

For the cream filling
350 ml milk
a vanilla pod
60 g of powdered sugar
3 egg yolks
Corn flour 15g

Make the custard: Pour the milk into a saucepan. Cut the vanilla pod in half lengthwise, scrape out the seeds with the tip of a knife and add them together with the gondola to the milk. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat immediately and leave to draw the vanilla.

Beat powdered sugar, egg yolks and cornstarch, then pour in the milk and mix well, remove the vanilla pod empty. Clean the pan, then pour the hot cream over medium heat, stirring almost constantly, until the sauce is thick and feels heavy in the spoon. Remove from heat and reserve.

Chop the rhubarb into short, long cork pieces, place them in a shallow pan, add the powdered sugar and orange and then let simmer until they hold soft but still retain their shape for 10 minutes or. If you want, you can bake.

Shape the dough into a rectangle approximately 40cm long and 30cm wide, making it the longest side visible. Under the right edge, roll the dough on a short to form tight roll, then cut into 12 slices. Place each piece of dough on the work surface and press or to deploy with a little flour if necessary, making it perfect to cover the base and sides of the individual muffin pans.

Set the oven at 200C/gas mark 6 Coat muffin tins with the dough, then fill each with a square of paper and baking beans, fat or with a ball of crumpled aluminum foil and bake for 12-15 minutes, until the dough is dry and slightly crispy. Lower the oven temperature to 160C/gas mark 3.

Remove the paper and beans or foil, fill each case with pudding then add 2 or 3 slices of cooked rhubarb to each. Put the cake back in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until the custard easily adjusted. Remove from heat, let stand for a few minutes and then carefully remove the can with a spatula, spoon scoop on all ofrhubarb syrup and let cool.
