Ingredients Mille Feuille French Recipe
- 400 g puff pastry
- 300 g crème pâtissière
- 20 g powdered sugar
- 50 g chocolate chips
- 20 g icing sugar
Unroll the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Trim the pastry so that you are left with a rectangle.
Roll out the larger piece of pastry to a 30cm square, make sure you use a very even, gentle pressure on the rolling pin so that you end up with nice even edges.
Grease the baking sheet and use a rolling pin to transfer the pastry to the baking sheet.
Prick the surface of the pastry with a fork. Sift 1 teaspoon of the icing sugar all over the pastry.
Place the baking sheet on a high shelf in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. Really extra crisp is needed.
Remove from the oven and, using a sharp knife, cut the square into three equal strips.
Place a pastry strip on the plate, and cover with half the crème pâtissière. Add chocolate chips.
Put the second pastry strip on the creme, and cover with the remaining crème pâtissière. Add more chocolate chips.
Finally, add the icing sugar on the top.
