Marjolaine

Recipe by  

"It's similar to chocolate lasagna, but with puff pastry. If you have the time, it's quite the masterpiece. Don't worry, puff pastry isn't that hard to work with - just be gentle with it."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry to 13x13 inches square. With a sharp knife, trim to 12x12 inches. Cut into 3 equal strips, 4x12 inches. Poke each strip several times with a fork. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with hazelnuts.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Allow to cool. If not equal in size, trim with a serrated knife, using a gentle sawing motion.
  4. Melt chocolate in a bowl over barely simmering water, stirring constantly, until smooth. Cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, brown sugar and coffee until smooth. Blend in melted chocolate. Fold in ground hazelnuts and almonds. In a large bowl, whip cream until peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cheese mixture, then quickly fold in remaining whipped cream until no streaks remain.
  5. Spread 1/3 of filling on a strip of puff pastry. Repeat layers. Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until set. With a serrated knife, cut into 10 slices using a gentle sawing motion.

Excellent!!! I made it even easier by using puff pastry shells instead of sheets, then topped with whipped cream and a strawberry. My guests loved it!

I enjoyed this recipe lots and have to admit it took just a bit more work than I anticipated. The filling was scrumptious but only 4 stars because I never had marjolaine before so not sure if it supposed to be like this. After refrigerating for 3 hours part of the puff pastry was getting a bit soft (which was something I thought may happen but was hoping for it to remain crisp) and I wasn't too pleased with that. Overall this was very delicious, yummy. Thanks for sharing.
