Mixed Berry Millefeuille






Hi there! As promised from my earlier post, here's my first French dessert - Mixed Berry Millefeuille! Millefeuille in French term, literally means a thousand leaves or a thousand sheets, which refers to the many layers of the puff pastry.

I am amazed that such a classy and elegant dessert is so simple to make that you'd be surprised..it really is simple.  Believe me!  With the help of ready made puff pastry, off course!  lol.  Not only that, it's soooo delicious.  Only thing is, you must make this fresh and eat it.  Tell you frankly, I'm starting to crave for some right now as I speak. Haahaaha.

Ok, here's the recipe:
1 sheet ready-rolled puff pastry, thawed
150g sour cream
2 tbsp soft brown sugar
2 tbsp cream
200g mixed fresh or frozen berries of your choice
icing sugar to dust

1. Pre-heat oven to moderately hot at 200dC. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Cut the pastry sheet into eight 6 x 12 cm rectangles (I cut it to the size that I want), place on the prepared tray and bake for 10 mins or until pastry is puffed and lightly golden. Set aside to cool. (If you lightly flatten the puffs with your hand, the cream will sit better).
3. Place the sour cream, brown sugar and cream in a bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Divide into the four portions and spoon one portion each onto the flat side of the pastry puffs.  Top with mixed berries and cover with the remaining pastry puffs on to each. Dust with icing sugar, serve immediately.

Note: The puffs can be made ahead to save time and store in an airtight container.

Next post will feature local dessert.  Till then, enjoy!

  12. these look wonderful and so light and fruity, something I have yet to bake, but they will be perfect for later in the year when I have some blueberries, strawberries and raspberries ready for picking in the garden.
