Toaster Pastry ~ Easy Mille-feullie (Napoleon)~

One of my favorite kinds of cakes is mille-feullie<3 data-blogger-escaped-br="">Sheets of puff pastry sandwiched with pastry creme.

This recipe is very easy. You can bake a pie in a toaster oven:)

★Pie crust
-1 frozen pie sheet

Move the frozen pie crust to the fridge a day before you plan to use it.
Cut into desired sizes.
With a fork poke small holes in the crust.
Line toaster oven tray with aluminum foil.
Bake until pastry is golden brown.
Cover the pastry with another sheet of aluminum foil to prevent it from burning and bake until it swells. ( about 10-15mins)

To make mille-feullie, You can just spread pastry creme between the layers of pies. I made the creme from soy milk this time! It tastes like custard creme.

~soy creme~

almond flour 90g (1cup)
soy milk 300g (1&1/2cup)
grated *yamaimo 90g
agar 1/2tsp
Maple Syrup 75g (1/4cup)
*(nigari 1/2tsp) - if you have.
corn or potato starch or arrowroot 2tbs dissolved in 3 tbs water

*Yamaimo is called Japanese Yam. It is a root vegetable that is viscous in texture like okra.

*nigari is the most common tofu coagulants used. It is composed mainly of magnesium chloride and other minerals found in seawater.

You can find both nigari and yamaimo at Japanese grocery stores.
