Easy Mille Feuille (My version)

Traditionally, a Mille-feuille is made up of three layers of puff pastry, alternating with two layers of cream pâtissière, but sometimes whipped cream, or jam. The top is usually glazed with icing or fondant in alternating white (icing) and brown (chocolate) strips, and combed. Here I used the ready-made puff pastry biscuits, and my filling was custard with pudding, and topped it with some icing sugar. It’s so easy and very tasty and refreshing. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • ***2 packets (21 biscuits) puff pastry biscuits

  • ***Icing sugar (for dusting over Mille Feuille)

  • ***For FILLING:

  • 1 packet (3.4oz) Vanilla Instant pudding+ 1 ¾ cup cold milk

  • Home-made Custard (4 egg yolks+ 2tsp vanilla+ 1/8 tsp vinegar+ ¼ cup flour+ ¼ cup corn flour (in Arabic: Nashaa)+ 2 ½ cups milk+ ½ cup sugar. Mix all and stir over high heat till it boils. Reduce heat and continue stirring for another 5 minutes or till it thickens. Pour in wide plate, cover with plastic on surface. Cool for 1hr or till completely cold.)

Method

  • 1.

    First prepare the custard as directed above.

  • 2.

    Prepare the pudding by mixing the instant pudding powder+ cold milk using electric or manual mixer till it thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Cover and cool in fridge.

  • 3.

    After custard and pudding are cold, take out and mix together. Filling is now ready.

  • 4.

    Just an hour before serving you assemble: line a loaf pan, or same biscuit box with plastic wrap. Arrange 1 layer of biscuits. Biscuits sugar side should be facing down. Pour ¼ filling quantity over biscuits, then arrange another layer of biscuit, then another layer of filling then another layer of biscuits. Cover and keep in fridge for maximum 1 hour.

  • 5.

    Before serving, flip the loaf over serving plate and remove the plastic wrap. Sprinkle some icing sugar on top using a siever. Cut and serve.

Notes

This quantity makes two loafs, so u can prepare and use half of the filling for one time, and next time use the balance.

anyways dear, if u couldn't find the biscuits, just use the puff pastry dough,roll them out,cut them to rectangles, the size u prefer, pierce them with a fork, and bake them, as i read, between 2 greased baking sheets so they won't puff and will stay flat. continue as mentioned in the recipe.
The filling it self here is REALLY TASTY.. so don't miss trying this one my dear..
