Red fruit crunchy recipe with lemon balm

Preheat the oven to 210 ° C.

  • Stack 12 pastry sheets and place them on a cutting board.
  • Cut them in a circle to a smaller size.

Place a sheet of baking paper on the board.

  • Place a cut sheet of brick on the paper.
  • In a bowl, melt the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave, then brush this sheet of butter with a brush.
  • Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Superimpose a second disk of pastry sheet on the already sweet one.
  • Butter then sweeten. Repeat the operation with a third sheet of brick pastry. Repeat this operation 3 more times to obtain enough to make 4 corollas.
  • Hollow out these layers of pastry sheet in muffin-type molds.
  • Bake on a baking sheet for 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Hull and cut the strawberries in 4.
  • Chop the lemon balm leaves.
  • In a bowl, combine the fruits and the finely chopped lemon balm.
