A Sugar Obsession


Last Saturday, I was receiving some friends at my place, and, as a real sugar addict, it was THE opportunity to make a good dessert. With the beginning of spring, I really wanted to make something fresh, with fruits. I had already tested this recipe and it was a real success !

The original recipe indicated to use raspberries and pomegranate as a garnish, but you can really adapt it and use the fruits that you want. I chose to use strawberries! This recipe can be quite impressive (a lot of steps) but don’t be afraid!  

1. The yogourt and white chocolate custard:
You will need :
- 6 tbsp. of white sugar
- 1 tbsp. of cornstach
- 1 tbsp. of all-purpose flour
- 1 egg and 1 egg yolk
- ½ tsp. of vanilla extract (or more if you want)
- ½ cup of milk
- 2 oz of white chocolate
- ½ cup of yoghurt

Steps:
- Out of heat, mix the sugar, the cornstarch and the flour.
- Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well. Add the milk to the mixture.
- Bring to boil, stirring constantly to prevent a deposit to be created at the bottom of the pan and burn.
- Once the mixture thickens, remove from heat and add the white chocolate and stir until the chocolate is completely melted, then add the yoghurt.
- Pour into a bowl and place it in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.

PS: To prevent the cream to harden on the top, put a plastic wrap directly on the custard.

2. The whipped cream:
You will need:
- 1 cup of 35 % cream
- 2 tbsp. of white sugar
- ½ tsp. of vanilla extract

Steps:
Whip the cream with the sugar and the vanilla extract until the mixture is firm enough to return the dishes without it falls.

3. The puff pastry:
You will need:
- approx. ½ lbs of puff pastry
- 1 tbsp. of 35% cream
- 1 tbsp. of white sugar

Steps:
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Roll out the dough and cut rectangles the size you want depending on the number of portions that you want.
- Brush the pastry with the cream and sprinkle with the sugar.
- Cook for about 20 minutes, until the pastry is golden. Then let it cool completely.

4. Assembly:
- Cut the pastry in half lengthwise and add the pastry cream, strawberries and whipped cream on the bottom half.
- Cover with the top half.


Et Voilà!
