A dessert of leftovers

Berry filled shell
We had some puff pastry shells leftover from when I made chicken pot pie not too long ago so I decided to make a dessert out of them with whatever was in the house.

2 puff pastry shells
handful of frozen blueberries (from morning smoothies)
handful of frozen blackberries (from morning smoothies)
juice of 1 lemon (leftover from baking red snapper)
a little sugar
whipping cream (also leftover from chicken pot pie)

I heated the berries, sugar & lemon juice together until it thickened slightly. The whipping cream I whipped up. Then the berries get poured over the shells & topped with whipped cream. I think it looks like it took a lot more thought than it did.

We let the berries cook down a little too much so we added a little orange juice to thin it out. It added a nice flavor but overshadowed the lemon so next tiem I'd be more careful cooking the sauce.
