"French Vanilla Slices are called 'Mille-feuilles' and are made with puff pastry sandwiched together with jam, cream, or confectioners' custard. They can be dusted with confectioners' sugar or iced with a glaze icing. For coffee-flavored custard, omit the vanilla, and add strong coffee essence to taste just before use. For orange-flavored custard, infuse the zest of an orange in the milk."

7 1/2 tablespoons
whole vanilla bean
castor sugar or superfine sugar
1 1/2 (17.5 ounce) packages
frozen puff pastry
confectioners' sugar for dusting
I saw another mille feuille online which calls for lesser plain flour, I reduced the plain flour to 4 tbsp. I used only 2 sheets of frozen pastry and it took only 10-12mins to bake. My advise is to cut it into serving size before dusting the sugar. Overall, it was presentable and taste yummy and worth a try.
I have made similar to this recipe for years now, but I precut the pastry before baking to a uniform size.This prevents breakage of pastry and the under-side is flatter which makes stacking easier.I also use less flour in the custard.Hope this helps others with assembling and presentation.
This is one of my favorite deserts. I am from Canada, and a lot of my relatives make these when we go there. Good job!
I thought the custard tasted of flour. It wasn't very nice. Next time I will use a different pastry custard recipe. Overall, the dessert was OK.
okay, so ihave made some changes..
i used 4 tbsp of flour.
and i dip each baked pastry with meletd choc on the top.
i used sliced strawberry instead of any other fruit used in the original recipe.
turned out great..but a very bad looking dessert.
all the pastry puffed and i cant put them in layers...the custard run down .....>.< rally bad looking but taste good.
I really liked it i used heavy cream strawberrys, kiwis, and rasbarry jam, for the heavy cream i beat it till it had a firm shape added some powderd suger that was the filling spread some jam and added straberris and kiwis my hubby like them. so did i
Yummy! I didn't have a vanilla bean or castor sugar so I followed an already tried-and-true recipe for pastry cream from here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pastry-cream-2/detail.aspx , which came out excellent. Followed the rest of this recipe and used raspberry preserves instead of apricot. Very good and my husband and friends loved it!
