Mini lemon millefeuilles


Mini lemon millefeuilles
These dainty and delicious mini millefeuilles have layers of puff pastry filled with lemon confectioner's custard (pastry cream).

They are a bit tricky because they are quite fragile and do not keep well once assembled. But freshly made, they are a true delight.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Mini lemon millefeuilles : Photo of step #1
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).

If not ready-rolled, roll out 150 g Puff or flaky pastry (pâte feuilletée) thinly, then cut out circles 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. A cutter is best for this.

Arrange the circles on a baking sheet and dust with icing sugar.

Stage 2 - 2 min.

Lay a sheet of cooking parchment on the pastry, then lay a second

baking sheet on top, to stop the pastry puffing up too much during cooking.


Stage 3 - 25 min.

Bake for about 25 minutes, until the discs are nicely browned (check by lifing the top baking sheet).

Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Remarks

If you would prefer a slightly simpler version, use a vanilla-flavoured custard instead of the lemon.

To make different versions, simply use a different flavoured custard/cream filling, such as chantilly.
