Description

Despite its fancy French name (mille feuille is translated to a thousand sheets) and restaurant pedigree, this layered sweet is simple enough to prepare at home, thanks to the availability of good-quality frozen puff pastry. In this version, the pastry is first baked until flaky and crisp, then sprinkled with powdered sugar and broiled until nicely caramelized. Use a serrated knife to cut the pastry into rectangles, which are filled with a rich custard, with raspberries and grated green apples as tart counterparts.

Ingredients

1 sheet puff pastry (thawed if frozen)
2 egg yolks
60 grams granulated sugar
30 grams corn starch
1/4 vanilla beans
250 grams whole milk
1 1/2 gelatin sheet
heavy whipping cream (25 cl., plus 2 tablespoons)
35 grams powdered sugar
300 grams fresh raspberries
1 green apples (cut into sticks, keeping the skin)

Directions

1Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
2Roll out the puff pastry sheet between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Bake it between 2 cooking sheets (so that it cooks without rising too much) for 30/35 minutes.
3Take it out of the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Caramelize it by passing it under the gril. Be careful not to forget to remove the parchment paper that would ignite under the grill.
4Prepare the custard: whisk the egg-yolks, the granulated sugar, and the vanilla together with the cornstarch.
5Heat the milk until warm and add the egg / sugar / cornstarch mixture and stir over low heat so that it thickens.
6Pour directly into a bowl and cover it with plastic film to prevent the formation of a crust. Allow to cool.
7When the vanilla cream is cold, whip it to give it a more uniform consistency.
8Put the gelatin in a bowl of cold water to soften it.
9Whisk 25 centiliters of heavy whipping cream until it becomes chantilly whilst incorporating 35 grams of icing sugar.
10In a small bowl heat up 2 tablespoons of heavy cream.
11Wring out the gelatin and stir it in the hot cream, mix well to make sure it is properly dissolved.
12Blend the cream with the vanilla mix.
13Gradually add whipped cream by gently lifting the mix so that it remains foamy.
14Pour it into a pastry bag fitted with a fluted or a simple tip, depending on the shape you want to give. Let it cool on the refrigerator for 2 hours before using.
15Cut the puff pastry dough into 12 rectangular units, using a bread knife with a saw blade.
16Place a line of vanilla cream and then add the green apple and the raspberries. Cover with another rectangle and sprinkle with icing sugar.
