Dessert Recipe: CUSTARD FRUIT PUFF PASTRY SHELLS

For an easy and light springtime dessert, I made these ‘Custard Fruit Puff Pastry Shells’ over the weekend. A flaky pastry topped with a vanilla flavored custard, fresh raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or you can even add slices of strawberries or kiwi. These delightful bite-sized desserts can be added to your brunch menu or to serve as an afternoon treat!
