What to make:Puff pastry Recipe: Puff Pastry with Creamy Buttercream and Crispy Slices.
2 cups heavy cream, plus 2 tablespoons for the filling1 cup butter1/4 cup sugar1 cup milk1 egg1 teaspoon vanilla1 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 teaspoon vanilla extractThe filling:1/3 cup sugar3 cups powdered sugar4 tablespoons butter1 cup powdered sugar1/8 teaspoon vanillaDirections:Combine the heavy cream and butter in a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, milk, and eggs.
Add the vanilla, cinnamon, and vanilla.
Stir to combine.
Mix until well combined.
Add in the powdered sugar.
Pour the batter into the prepared pastry dish.
Place the pastry dish in the fridge for about 3 hours.
Place a piece of foil over the dish to keep the pastry from sizzling.
Allow the pastry to set in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Place it in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Let it cool completely before using.
To make the filling, mix the powdered and buttercream together in a bowl.
Add 1 tablespoon of the buttercream mixture to each cup of cream.
Pour in the remaining buttercream.
Allow to sit in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Remove the foil from the fridge and pour the mixture into the filling.
Fold in the cinnamon and vanilla until the frosting is just thick enough to coat the top of the pastry.
If you are making the filling ahead of time, you can refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to 2 days before you are ready to use it.
If you are not, the filling can be frozen.
For this recipe, I used a 12-inch puff pastry and the recipe calls for 12 cups of cream filling.
You can also make this recipe ahead of the day you are going to serve it.
Remove the foil and place the pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Using a pastry brush, brush the top and sides of the puff pastry with the cream filling mixture.
Place the pastry in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time until it has cooled.
Repeat this process with each puff pastry recipe until you have made enough puff pastry for 4 servings.
