Canapés with blueberries and mascarpone
I always keep some of these pastry canapé cups in my larder for inspiration and emergency snacks. You can buy them from Waitrose and plenty of other good food shops or delis.
The filling can be sweet or savoury; up to you. This option is dead simple – all it takes is a little softened mascarpone or cream cheese with a couple of blueberries on top.
20 canapé cups
Approx 150g blueberries
½tbsp caster sugar
50-60g mascarpone or cream cheese, softened
Put about a quarter of the blueberries into a small pan with the sugar and half a tablespoon of water. Gently heat them and simmer very gently for a minute or so then remove from the heat and push the blueberries and liquid through a fine strainer with the back of a spoon. Leave to cool.
To serve, place the mascarpone into the canapé cups, arrange the blueberries on top and spoon the syrup over.
