Assembly and finishing

Prepare the Pineapple Confit and Shortcrust Pastry. Spread the Shortcrust out to a thickness of 4mm, then store it in the refrigerator. Use round cutters to cut into this thin Shortcrust – Do not lift the rings out. Freeze before you lift the rings away. 

Bake for approx. 15 minutes between two perforated silicone baking mats. Also bake the Shortcrust decorations with the Passion Fruit Shortcrust.

Use some tempered PASSION FRUIT INSPIRATION and the dry point of a compass to make rings of an identical size to your shortcrust rings, then leave them to set.
Make the Jelly, pour 50g into each verrine glass, then leave to set in the refrigerator.

Place 25g of Passion Fruit Shortcrust onto the Jelly, followed by a liberal sprinkling of 50g of Pineapple Confit. Put the rings in place, alternating between Shortcrust and PASSION FRUIT INSPIRATION to give a sense of volume.
