strawberry-mille-feuill


Thanks joey for getting me strawberries xD
Ingredients
400g puff pastry
500g strawberries, hulled and sliced
300ml whipping cream
225g custard powder
400ml hot water
1 tbsp icing sugar, to dust
Method
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.1. For the millefeuille, roll the pastry out to 5mm/¼in thick. Cut into nine rectangles approximately twice as long as they are wide and place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden-brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
2. Mix the custard powder with 400ml hot water, stir it unit smooth and thick, leave to stand for 1 minutes.3. Place the double cream into a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed.
4. Carefully cut each piece of pastry in half through the middle to make two thin pieces and top with whipping cream. Lay some of the sliced strawberries on top of the cream, then top with some custard and second pastry. Repeat the process with the remaining cream and strawberries and top each with the final glazed piece of pastry. Dust with icing sugar to serve..
