It’s been long time I want to try making something using puff pastry. I’ve never found it in the nearby supermarket, and I didn’t have enough will to make it from scratch since it would need looong time, hehe. Until one day Sre introduced me to a frozen pie sheet in OK Store. I guess it’s similar to puff pastry, haha. So here we are, my first experiment result. Mille-feuille, also known as the Napoleon, is a pastry of French origin. I first knew this dessert from Masterchef Indonesia. There was a challenge where Chef Marinka made a beautiful Napoleon and then the contestants should make it. My mille-feuille is made up of three layers of puff pastry (pâte feuilletée), alternating with two layers of pastry cream (crème pâtissière). The top pastry layer is dusted with powdered sugar and cocoa sugar. Well, still not perfect yet, but not bad for a first experiment. And trust me, if you have frozen puff pastry, this one is really easy to make. 😀
