Sweet Saturday: Miniature Sorbet Pastries

By

Today is the first Saturday in MONTHS that I haven’t either: a) been out of town or b) had company staying at our house. Seriously. For real. As in, March 26th was the last free Saturday I can remember having (and even then, I was slaving away on my research). So, as you can imagine, this has been a VERY sweet Saturday for me. 

Today, while in the grocery store, I passed by some mango sorbet. Doesn’t mango sorbet sound just perfect for a Memorial-Day-weekend-summer-time-treat? Well, it got me thinking back to a few years ago, when Fran made this pie filled with lemon sorbet. If I remember correctly, she topped it with a mix of berries and honey. And it was SO tasty. So tasty, that I decided to do a re-mix version of Fran’s pie.

I didn’t want to make a WHOLE pie since it’s just the two of us, so I decided to use miniature pastry cups instead. I baked them, filled them with the sorbet, and put them in the freezer to chill. Then, I topped them with strawberries (strawberries and mangos = best fruit combo EVER) and a blueberry (just for more frills), and I drizzled some honey on them, too. 

What a perfect summer treat! You can see from the picture that I didn’t chill the sorbet quite long enough on this one. The rest of the batch will be even better.
