Mini Millefeuilles

Mille-feuilles "thousand sheets" is a pastry made of several layers of puff pastry alternating with a sweet filling, typically pastry cream, but sometimes whipped cream, or jam. It is usually glazed with icing or fondant in alternating white and brown (chocolate) strips, and combed. The name is also written as "millefeuille" and "mille feuille".(text: wikipedia)

I never try to make it myself but in fact it's very easy. I use ready-to-use puff pastry and ready-to-use vanilla custard powder. They are very difficult to be sliced so I make them in separate portions and in mini versions in the shape of stars. They look so pretty after all. I like the combination to be eaten with strawberries.

This is also my entry for Jugalbandi photo event for the month june 2009 with theme "Stacks".

Mini Millefeuilles

Ready-to-use puff pastry:
Prepare and bake the pastry according to pastry's directions in the packaging.
Put aside and let it to cool down.

Ready-to-use vanilla custard powder:
Prepare and cook thick custard according to directions in the packaging.
Put aside and let it to cool down.
Pour 1 teaspoon rhum in the custard, mix well.

Take a slice of pastry, spread the custard on top of it. Do the same for the rest of the pastry's. Arrange the cream pastry's on top of each other. Dust with icing sugar if you like it.
