This dessert is a head turner and it’s out to impress your dinner guests. Not only is it delicious, it is actually really easy to make. If you are not in the mood to make the pastry, you can always settle for those ready made ones but I’ve always like to make things from scratch; this way, I get to control what goes into my tummy.
