Flaky pastry nests
1 roll flaky pastry
1 egg with a dash of milk – egg wash
Roll out the dough and cut circles (or squares)
Paint with egg and then cut a second circle. Punch out a circle to form a small ring and add on top of the circle. I added two rings to produce an edge.
Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes, or golden brown.
237ml carton whipping cream
250ml full cream evaporated milk + 25ml
40 ml custard powder
120 g butter, cut into chucks
425 ml castor sugar
50 ml Kahlua
Combine cream and milk in a big microwave glass container
Heat cream/milk in microwave for 2-3 minutes.
Add butter chucks and use a small hand whisk to mix, till all butter melted.
If required, return to microwave for 20-30 seconds, and whisk again till all smooth.
Mix custard powder to a paste with 25 ml additional evaporated milk
Combine all together and whisk till no lumps visible.
Add the sugar and whisk till well blended.
Return to the microwave and cook for 1 minute at a time, and whisk.
Repeat once or twice as needed, depending on the strength of your microwave.
I returned it once, mixed it and then a second time for ±45 seconds.
Whisk and once thick enough, add 50ml Kahlua and mix thoroughly.
Cover the surface of the custard with cling wrap to prevent a skin forming.
Set aside to cool.
Place all the custard in a piping bag with a large star nozzle, and pipe the custard on the cold nests.
Decorate with any fresh fruit and dust with icing sugar.
Now all you need to still do – ENJOY it with a cup of coffee and share it with your family and friends <3
