This puff pastry dessert recipe is a very easy dessert to make. It is quick, and best of all tastes great.
You just need the puff pastry dough and pudding. The original puff pastry recipe called for a self-made crème, but I simplified it with my recipe for pudding based filling.
This puff pastry recipe really is just putting two products together and sprinkling them with powdered sugar.
I particularly like this recipe in summer served with vanilla ice cream.
If you like, you can go over board and make vanilla sauce and pour on top of the ice cream. I hope that you will enjoy this easy to make puff pastry dessert.
Puff Pastry Dessert Recipe
For the puff pastry dessert: • 2 packs of puff pastry • Powdered sugar to sprinkle
For the pudding crème: • 1 pack of vanilla pudding powder • 500 ml milk (2 cups) – needed to make vanilla pudding • 100 g sugar (3.5 oz) • 200 g butter (7 oz) • 15 g coco fat (.5 oz)(Palmin in Germany or Copha, part of Peerless)
Prepare the pastry: • Roll out the dough until ½ cm (¼ inch) thick. • Place on parchment paper and then on cookie sheet and bake according to instructions.
Prepare the pudding filling: • Prepare pudding according to the instructions on the package. Usually you need to add the 500 ml (2 cups) of milk. • If the instructions ask for some sugar, just ignore this and add 100 g sugar instead and 15 g coco fat. The fat makes the cream easy to spread. Stir until it cools off. • Beat the butter until soft and fluffy and add the cooled off pudding. The butter and the pudding should be the same temperature.
Prepare the puff pastry dessert: • Smear the pudding filling onto one baked rectangle and cover with the other one. • Once the cream completely cools off, cut with a sharp knife into 2.5 inches (5 cm) squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
