So, here's my first attempt in this French pastry together with all the pretty ladies in this 'Bake-Along theme Mille Feuille'
Mille Feuille with Homemade Cranberry Sauce (Bake-Along #73)
Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet)
Refer to source : m.puffpastry
Below my slightly modified version.
Heat the oven to 180°C.
Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.
Cut the pastry sheet into cookie cutter of your choice.
Place the cut out pastry onto a baking sheet.
I didn't thaw the pastry sheet. About 1 - 2 minutes after taken out from the freezer, I cut the pastry sheet with cookie cutter as I find it easier to handle. I used a 9cm diameter cookie cutter, made 5 rounds in 1 pastry sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheet and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Split the pastries into 2 layers.
I've left with half the pack of fresh cranberries from last Christmas. Decided to make some cranberry sauce for these pastry filling and other tarts.
Recipe source : My Baking Addiction
Below my slight modification made.
50g granulated sugar
50g light brown sugar
90ml orange juice
250g fresh cranberries
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugars, water and orange juice.
Stir continuously until sugars are dissolved. Add in the cranberries.
Cook until the cranberries start to pop (about 10 minutes), stir constantly. Remove from heat, stir in Grand Marnier and place sauce in a bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.
250ml heavy cream
1.5 tablespoons caster sugar
Whisk the heavy cream and caster sugar with an electric mixer till stiff peak.
To assemble :
Some strawberries - thinly sliced
Top 1 layer with a heaped teaspoon of cranberry sauce, then a teaspoon of whipped cream.
Cover with another puff pastry layer. Spread 1.5 teaspoon of whipped cream. Place some sliced strawberries on the whipped cream.
Cover with the 3rd puff pastry and gently press it.
To serve, dust with some icing sugar and serve with some strawberries ^-^!
