MilleFeuille with Mock Zabaglione and Berries Recipe
Posted on 25th of October, 2011 by Lévana
Millefeuille is the easiest dessert ever, and so much fun, and delicious! MilleFeuille is a fun name that literally means a thousand leaves in French, because the puff pastry separates into lots of paper-thin sheets during baking. You can make both the zabaglione (I am including my delicious recipe!) and the puff pastry layers several days in advance: Millefeuille is the perfect no-pressure dessert! Just keep the puff pastry good and chilled at all times, so it will flake properly during baking.
If fresh berries are out of season and are too expensive, use frozen berries, and use just a few fresh ones for garnish
1 pound good quality puff pastry sheets, thawed and kept very chilled
1 recipe mock zabaglione
2 pints berries, larger berries sliced
Confectioner’s sugar for garnish
Optional: Chocolate drizzle
Microwave 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips with a tablespoon oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Cut each pastry sheet in 9 equal pieces. You’ll have a total of 18 square-shaped pieces. Prick the pastry all over with a fork, and bake about 25 minutes, until golden brown and puffy. Let the pastry cool.
Assemble: alternate 3 pastry squares and berries in 3 layers in a dessert plate. Or simply pile the 3 pastry squares at an angle. repeat with the remaining pastry and berries. Divide the zabaglione among the plates. Drizzle the cream with the melted chocolate, if desired. Sift a little confectioner sugar over the pastry and berries.
