 LA CORONE D 'ABONDANCE: AUX FRUITS GLACES (Horn of Plenty With Glazed 
 Fruit)
 
 My note: A beautiful presentation.
 
 Prepare pastry and glazed fruits: Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. 
 
 On a lightly floured work surface, roll out pastry to a 5-by-16-inch 
 rectangle that is 1/16-inch thick. With a sharp knife, cut four 
 11/4-by-16-inch bands. Butter four 2-by-2 l/4-inch cornets and 
 beginning at the pointed end, wrap 1 band of pastry around each; 
 work toward open end in a spiral pattern. Press any extra pastry 
 inside horn. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and place on a 
 moistened, metal baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for about 
 20 minutes or until nut brown in color. Remove from oven and cool 
 on a rack.
 
 Slice kiwi, mango, and pear pieces into fan shapes.  Set aside.
 
 Prepare Chantilly cream: 
 In a medium bowl set over a bowl of ice, combine cream, sugar, and 
 vanilla and whip until soft peaks form.
 
 Prepare raspberry coulis: 
 In a blender or food processor, puree 1 cup raspberries. Strain puree 
 into a bowl. In a small, heavy saucepan, combine water and sugar. 
 Cook over medium heat for about 4 minutes or until sugar is melted 
 and mixture forms a slightly thickened light syrup. Remove from heat 
 and set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, combine raspberry  puree,
 cooled syrup, and lemon juice. Refrigerate. 
 
 To serve: With a sharp serrated knife, remove pastry horns from molds. 
 Fill each with 1 tablespoon Chantilly cream. Place a cream-filled horn
 at the top of each of 4 chilled plates. Spoon 3 tablespoons Raspberry
 Coulis in front of each horn. Place sliced (fanned) fruits on coulis and
 dip strawberries and reserved raspberries into remaining coulis to
 glaze.
 
 Garnish plates with grapes, glazed berries, mint sprigs, and verbena. 
 Place a small scoop of ice cream in the opening of each horn and serve 
 immediately.
