    Raspberry and Hazelnut Galettes with Raspberry Coulis

    These impressive individual layered desserts are actually very simple to make and taste as delicious as they look. For a special occasion, add a little Southbrook Farms Framboise to the coulis - it can be found among the fortified wine - and use a shaped cutter for the biscuits. The galettes can be prepared up to 2 hours before serving.

    6. Sandwich two shortbread rounds with cream and the remaining whole raspberries.
