Ingredients

For the strawberry ice cream
For the raspberry sable

Preparation method

  1. For the strawberry ice cream, blend the frozen strawberries, vanilla essence, icing sugar and clotted cream in a food processor for five seconds.

  2. With the motor running, pour in the whipping cream and continue to blend until smooth.

  3. Spoon the ice cream into a container and store in the freezer until ready to serve.

  4. For the raspberry sable, preheat the oven to 230C/450F/Gas 8.

  5. Roll the puff pastry out to a 0.5cm/¼in thickness. Cut out four 7.5cm/3in circles.

  6. Place the pastry circles onto a baking tray and dust with the icing sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden-brown and risen. Remove the pastry from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. Cut each disc in half lengthways.

  7. Place half of the raspberries into a food processor with 3-4 tablespoons of icing sugar and blend to a purée. Pass the purée through a fine sieve into a clean bowl.

  8. To serve, spoon some of the raspberry sauce onto serving plates. Place a pastry circles on top and pour over a little more sauce. Top with some raspberries, then place the remaining pastry halves on top. Place a scoop of strawberry ice cream alongside.
