My monday morning blues seem to have extended to Tuesday too… Well, post a hectic weekend and an even more hectic and stressful Monday, it is not surprising that I am now sitting all glum in office and craving for a good sugar hit… And the thing that I really want to eat is – a mixed Berry Pastry.
We found this beautiful pasty in a small family run coffee shop is a quaint German village called Monschau.
This pastry has a very thin layer of pastry / cake as the base, the centre is a cheesy cream filling (with a slight dash of lemon) and then there is a thick layer of mixed berries on the top i.e. blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.
The result is a really tasty pastry, fresh and full of zing because of the lemon and fruits and very light because of the fresh cream / cheese filling in the centre. We had it along with a cup of hot chocolate but I think that it will go well along with a nice cup of coffee too.
Fruits have never tasted better 🙂
