French Vanilla Slices (Mille-feuilles) Recipe

Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups milk
  • 7 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 whole vanilla bean
  • ¾ cup castor sugar or superfine sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 ½ (17.5 ounce) packages frozen puff pastry
  • ½ cup apricot preserves (Optional)
  • confectioners' sugar for dusting
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    In a small saucepan, heat milk until small bubbles form. Drop in the vanilla pod, remove saucepan from heat, and set aside to cool until just warm. In a medium saucepan, stir together the flour, sugar, salt, and egg yolks. Beat for a moment, then gradually whisk in warm milk. Simmer over medium-low heat until the custard thickens, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking. Transfer custard to a bowl, and allow to cool, stirring from time to time.

  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out the puff pastry into a single sheet about 1/2 inch thick; it should be the same size as a 17×14 inch baking sheet. Place the pastry onto the baking sheet, and prick all over with a fork.

  • Step 3

    Bake in preheated oven for 28 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool pastry on the baking sheet.

  • Step 4

    When the pastry has cooled completely, transfer it from the baking sheet to a hard surface, and cut lengthwise into three 4 to 5 inches wide strips. Spread one strip thickly with custard. Place a second strip directly over the first; spread the top evenly with jam. Cover with the third strip, and dust with confectioners' sugar. With a very sharp knife, cut into 8 rectangular portions.
