This is a French style vanilla slice called mille-feuilles. They are delicious and easy to make using frozen puff pastry.
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. - 12 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 06 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 24 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
