At the request of some of my subscribers from You tube, I present you my home-made Mille Feuille.
You know, in my home town Kénitra in Morocco, there is place square called "Khebbazat", it is a place full of stores, coffee shops, restaurants, salesmen of everything and of anything.
There is a pastry store which I visit every time I go there to eat Mille Feuille, it is true that they have cakes with different flavors, but I am a regular of the Mille Feuille.
Everytime my sister Hayat says "Let's go to Khebbazat shopping", I say to her :"that means we will eat a Mille Feuille. She looks at me and rolls her eyes and says: "
" Sabah, we just had lunch 10 min ago", she no longer argues with me anymore because she knows beforehand that the pastry shop is my usual stopping place, she does not know that if I could, I would have taken this pastry shop here to the USA and place it just next to my house.
Thank you Hayat, my dear sister for your company which always pleases me when I am in Morocco. Only God knows how much I love you all.
Actually, I have already prepared Mille Feuille but the puff pastry was from the store, I had never prepared it from scratch, because of the lack of time.
This time, I divided the recipe in 2 days, I began by preparing the dough the first day, because it takes too much time, to work the dough, to let it rest in the refrigerator 20 min, and this must be done 6 times.
The next day, I bake it, I prepared the pastry cream and the glazing, I still had only the shaping and the decoration, it is really very easy if you share the work in 2 days, you don't feel the stress caused by the recipe.
Anyway, as soon as you put the first small piece in your mouth, you forget quite all the steps of the recipe, one thing remains, the happiness with the first bite.
