Well, that’s it. I’m finished my exams for the year! I had my last one on Monday and it went really well, then afterwards me and my friends went to the beach, and I’ve just been relaxing and going out since, which has been pretty awesome :)
I felt like making something that reflected my mood at the moment; the sun’s out all the time at the moment, I’m free and not riddled with anxiety like usual, and I feel like eating a load of sweet things… So I came up with these little personal cheapskate’s cherry pies. I wanted to make the pastry but it takes such a long time, then I thought that if you just get a tin of cherries and some pastry it works out to about £2 for the entire recipe, and takes barely any time, so it’s definitely doing the cheat’s method for these. They tasted really light and summery as well, so I hope you try them at home and enjoy them!
Most shop-bought puff pastry is vegan, check the ingredients, mine was :)
One tin of cherries (I used the ones that come in syrup)
One pack of ready-made puff pastry (you can make your own, but it’s really difficult and I wanted this recipe to be as easy as possible)
One tablespoon of demerara sugar
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
- Pour the cherries evenly between three ramekins. Cut the pastry into strips and layer them over the cherries. Smoosh the pastry onto the sides of the ramekins so it doesn’t fall off in the oven. Sprinkle the sugar over the pastry.
- Bake for 15 minutes until golden.
