1 Process frozen berries and bananas in a food processor until creamy. Transfer to an 18x18cm airtight container and return to freezer for 1 hour.
2 Preheat oven to 160°C. Spray 2 large baking trays with cooking oil. To make pastry, place spread, sugar, ginger, golden syrup and lemon juice in a small saucepan over a low-medium heat. When mixture has melted, slowly sift in flour and cornflour. Stir to combine. Remove from heat.
3 Drop 6 heaped teaspoons of pastry mix onto each baking tray, allowing space between so pastry has room to expand (make 12 in total). Bake for 8 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown. Set aside and allow to cool slightly before using a knife to lift pastry off baking tray.
4 Remove sorbet from freezer. Sandwich 1 scoop sorbet between 2 pastry layers. Repeat with remaining sorbet and pastry. Serve immediately, topped with a drizzle of golden syrup.
