Strawberry feuilleté

Step by step recipe:

  1. 30 min.Strawberry feuilleté : Photo of step #1

    Lime confectioner's custard

    Prepare 400 g Lemon Confectioner's Custard, but using lime rather than the lemon in the original recipe.

    When finished, you can add a few drops of green food colouring to the cream if you wish. A slight green tinge looks good against the red of the strawberries.

    ...and finish with a sprig of fresh mint.

Remarks:

It might not look like it, but this recipe is quite technical and does require a certain amount of know-how, especially to cook the puff pastry base perfectly.

Once you have got the hang of it, you can use your imagination to create as many different versions as you like using different creams and fruit.
