This is an easy dessert made with puff a pastry.  Much better than store bought version not just in taste but also in cost.  I used a puff pastry dough (meaning it requires to be rolled out) but I recently discovered that I can buy puff pastry in a box that comes already rolled out.  My guess is it'll be too thick to try for this recipe but if I do decide to try it, I'll post separately.

1 package of puff pastry (please see picture of the package below)
2 cups (500 gr) milk
2 egg yolks
85 gr sugar
1/2 cup (60 gr.) corn starch
40 gr. butter
1 package vanilla
1 package dream whip
1/2 cup milk (60 gr)
To decorate: Icing sugar, Strawberries and Chocolate sauce (store bought version for ice cream topping)
  • Roll out the puff pastry as thin as you can without breaking it
  • Cut into equal sized rectangles (each will make a top and a bottom). 
  • Preheat oven to 350 and bake until golden brown
  • Prepare the "cream" filling by mixing 2 cups milk, 2 egg yolks, 1/2 cup corn starch and 85 gr. sugar together and cook on medium heat until it thickens.  If you get lumps, you can use a hand mixer to remove them.  I found it cooks without any lumps if you continually mix it during cooking.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Mix a package of dream whip with 1/2 cup milk until it thickens and mix into the pudding.
  • Put 1 layer of pastry, 1 tablespoon filling, 1 layer of pastry.  Continue until your pastry is all done.  I had a bit of filling left over.  We ate it like a pudding.
  • Decorate with icing sugar, strawberry and chocolate sauce like the picture
  • Let it rest in the fridge for a couple of hours.  Then enjoy!
