Sablé breton with chocolate, with chantilly cream with saffron, berries and persimmons. If you have tried the recipe biscuits palets breton and did you like, Don't miss this sweet, in my opinion perfect also for a big dinner (Christmas or new year's Eve menu?). The appearance of the Breton shortbread is sleek and modern, Although it is quite easy to prepare, because in the end it is just making a base of Breton and a custard pastry. Both of the elements necessary for this sweet wonderful you can (must in the case of pastry) prepare them in advance, so all & #8217; last just assemble the cake and decorate it with your favorite fresh fruit. I used khaki Apple, blueberries and raspberries, you will not deny that I really like the colors combined together and it seems to me that their taste binds perfectly with the slight hint of saffron cream, but you can also use dried fruits, chocolate, candied fruits. The Breton shortbread with cream and fruit is a sweet elegant, from the base buttery and crumbly, and in fact remember a tart, but with the plus that is served cold, perhaps accompanied by a good raisin wine or a sparkling wine Asti. I'm sure you will enjoy it very much. And you will make a great impression, I guarantee. Have a good day!
