Description

A crisp-chewy, rich chocolate crust made with cocoa is filled with Vin Santo-inflected orange jelly in this sweet-meets-tart dessert that's as pleasing to the palette as the eye. Have a slice, topped with powdered sugar, along with hot chocolate or a cup of bergamot-scented Earl Grey tea. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. Bring the pie to room temperature before serving it.

Ingredients

460 grams pastry dough
60 grams flour
1/2 liter milk
water
1 lemon
350 grams sugar
8 egg yolks
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
powdered sugar

Directions

1Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
2Peel the lemon, set the peel aside for later, squeeze the juice from the lemon.
3Dilute the flour with 1/2 decaliter of milk by stirring them together into a soft batter with no lumps.
4Heat 1.2 decaliter of water, sugar, and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Stir continuously and bring it to a boil for 3 to 4 minutes until it becomes a fluid and golden caramel.
5Pour the remaining milk into a saucepan, add the lemon peel, and bring it to a boil.
6Remove the lemon peel and stir in the caramel as soon as it is ready.
7Incorporate the flour and milk batter, add the egg yolks, and stir continuously until the cream is fluid.
8Season with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
9Roll up each rectangular sheet of dough from the short side to obtain a long, narrow cylinder. Cut each cylinder into 5 pieces, 5 centimeters in length.
10Place each little cylinder on its cut side, next press down with your finger so that the internal layers of the cylinder form a dome shape, it is important that the thickness of the dough be uniform (approximately 2.5 millimeters)
11Place the 10 puff pastry dough domes each inside a buttered and floured pan, 8 centimeters in diameter.
12Fill the domes to three-fourths with the cream.
13Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The pasteis are done when the cream darkens and the surface caramelizes.
14Remove from the oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
