Berry Milles Feuilles

Dessert 1 out of 3 of Kimba's "Berry Desserts" Theme Project


In the next few coming blog entries, I will be featuring my little "Berry Desserts" Themed Project which involves me trying out various dessert recipes with berries. Just a little something I like to do to improve my baking skills! If you've been following my blog for a while, you will probably notice by now that I don't do desserts much, at all! That's why I have been more than happy to let my guest bloggers take the desserts centre stage, hehe.

To start off with my first berry dessert, I thought I'd share the simplest recipe I found on the Australian Good Food Magazine Dec 2010 issue. I love the creaminess of the filling and the refreshing berries, and the delicious crunch of the puff pastry. So simple yet so divine! 

Preheat oven to 220C or 200C fan. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Thaw a 24cm square sheet frozen puff pastry, then cut into twelve 12cm x 4cm rectangles. Place pastry on prepared tray and bake for 6-8 mins, until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Using an electric mixer, beat 1/2 cup custard and 1/2 cup cream until soft peaks form. Spread half of custard mixture over four pastry rectangles and top with 1 cup sliced strawberries. Top with another four pastry rectangles, remaining custard mixture and 1 cup raspberries. Top with remaining pastry, dust with pure icing sugar and serve. Makes 4.

So simple and easy!

I've never been much of a dessert person but there's no way I'd turn it down if it was presented for me or I really got an itch to make it, like last night. This looks really good! Be sure to enter my giveaway on my blog!

Beuatiful dessert with the berries...A while back, I did the same thing, only with the whipped cream layers, and ending with the fruit. I'm glad you are coming around to do more desserts, it balances out the rest of your fabulous dishes!
