Summer Fruit Crescent Bowls

Hello My glamorous friends , I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far . In the London I can finally say SUMMER IS HERE ! (But I want to jinks it , but it could rain in a couple of days or so . ) As summer is here in full swing I thought it was wise to do summer themed food . So these Summer fruit crescent bowls can get messy due to the sugar sauce being on the watery side however , if you would like it to thicker you could add more chia seeds or add 1tsp of corn flour .  


Shortcrust pastry Ingredients :

175g plain flour
25g icing sugar
100g cold vegan butter
2-3 Tbsp cold water


Method :
Add  flour and icing sugar  into a large mixing bowl. Add the margarine or butter and rub in gently with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add 3 tablespoons cold water until the pastry comes together in a ball. After that rap the  dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 1 hour .Preheat your oven to 180c or gas mark 4   , Once one hour has passed divide the mixture into four . Get a muffin or cupcake tin and place in face down .

sorry it was really hard to explain but I hope this helps .



 

Place in the oven and let it cook for 15mins , once its done let the dough cool for ten minutes . After that twist the gently anti - clockwise and there you have it your Crescent Bowls. Now the fruit part ...

Summer fruit sauce Ingredients :

1 cup water
150 g of caster sugar
2 cups frozen summer fruits
2 Tbsp chia seeds
 
Method :

Heat the sugar and water add the frozen fruits as soon as the sugar water mixture begins to simmer .
 Leave the mixture to bubble for 3-4 minutes to leach their juices and begin to soften. You still want whole berries where possible though. Pour the hot berry mix through a sieve so that the juices drain into a bowl. Add the chia seeds the fruit juice and leave for 15mins . Now you should have thick yet watery sauce . In a blender add the fruit juice and blend till the sauce becomes smooth . Place the fruits the you removed earlier into the fruit juice and mix till well combine. place the fridge and leave to chill for 30mintes . Grab your Crescent Bowl and place the chilled summer fruit sauce inside and serve .
