Strawberry Mini Pot Pie

It's the time of the year again where we take a moment from our busy schedule to show the love of our lives how much they truly mean to us...and it's also time for some sinful sweet indulgence...
I saw many foodie events being organized by fellow bloggers in conjunction of Valentine's day and decided to bake something sweet, something 'red''s super easy yet impressive and of coz...delicious ;)

U need :

2 cups of strawberries- I used Korean strawberries, quartered
puff pastry sheets, thawed
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp all purpose flour

Heat oven to 190 degrees celcius.
In a bowl, combine strawberries with brown sugar, orange juice and flour...
Cut out pastry sheets enough to fill 2 ramekins. Press pastry sheets into ramekins. Fill them with strawberry mixture. lastly cut out pastry sheet to make a criss- cross pattern and arrange them on the ramekins as shown in pic above.
Bake for about 20-25 mins..till golden...let it cool and serve with a scoop of ice cream...;)
