Thoughts 

This is an easy treat that looks fancy and is delicious. It is perfect for an afternoon tea or coffee with friends. This is a typical summer dessert due to the summer fruits for the topping and the flavor is very summery too. It is ideal for a garden party 🙂

My grandparents used to buy these often when I came over to their house. Now, I make them myself and they taste even better than the once from the bakery.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. Superb! So colorful, and they bring to mind the strawberry-filled croissants offered in French bakeries, except yours are a more practical version. Your family history with these is great too, especially as it’s a tradition you’ve improved.
