Ingredients

  • 1 roll pre-made puff pastry

PASTRY CREAM

  • 3/4 cup milk (172 1/2 grams)
  • 3/4 cup cream (whipping or whole cream) (172 1/2 grams)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar (112 1/2 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour (19.5 grams)

Instructions

  • First Prepare Pastry Cream.

PASTRY CREAM

  • In a medium pot, heat over low the milk and cream, do not boil. Remove from heat and let cool to warm.
  • In a medium pot add yolks and sugar, whisk together until combined, then add flour and vanilla, place pot over low heat, add warm milk/cream, whisking continuously until thickened. Remove to a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap (make sure wrap touches the cream mixture)let sit for approximately 20 minutes then refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

PUFF PASTRY SQUARES

  • Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius)
  • Cut puff pastry into 12 equal squares, puncture each square with a fork a few times, sprinkle with sugar and bake for approximately 20 minutes until puffy and lightly golden. Cool, then carefully, cut each square through the centre to make two parts (top and bottom).
  • Remove Pastry Cream from the refrigerator, place in pastry bag or use a spoon to fill 12 squares and then top with remaining squares, dust with powdered sugar and serve. If you would like to eat them warm then pre-heat oven to 350° and heat for approximately 2-4 minutes. We ate them unheated and they were delicious. Enjoy!
