Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 4 hours and 30 minutes


  • 2 cups (0.47 liters) of cold heavy cream
  • 8 large eggs, yolks and whites divided
  • Optional: 2 tablespoons of rum
  • 1 1/2 cups (300 grams) of granulated sugar
  • 4 cups (0.95 liters) of whole milk
  • 2 thawed puff pastry sheets
  • 3 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 1/4 cups (156 grams) of all-purpose flour


  1. Kick off your culinary journey by cranking your oven up to 350°F (175°C). Spread out puff pastry sheets on baking sheets and pop them in the oven. When they turn a lovely golden brown after roughly 10 minutes, take them out and let them cool.
  2. Meanwhile, gently heat 3 cups of milk in a saucepan over medium heat until it simmers.
  3. In a sizable mixing bowl, unite the egg yolks and white sugar, beating them into a light and frothy delight. Following that, carefully incorporate the flour, vanilla extract, and a optional dash of rum. Also, blend in the remaining cup of milk into this mixture.
  4. When your milk begins to simmer, steadily pour in the egg yolk blend, stirring constantly to ensure a smooth texture. Continue this until the mix thickens up. As soon as it’s thick and creamy, pull the saucepan off the heat.
  5. For additional fluffiness, grab a separate bowl and whip the egg whites using an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold these into the custard for a light and creamy texture.
  6. Your puff pastry sheets should be cooled down by now. Lay one sheet in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish, then pour the custard evenly over it. Chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, giving the custard time to set.
  7. Once the custard is firm, whip your chilled heavy cream with 2 tablespoons of confectioner’s sugar. Keep whipping until stiff peaks form, then layer this sweet cream atop the set custard.
  8. Slice the second puff pastry sheet into 15 equal squares and place these on top of the whipped cream, arranging them for aesthetic appeal. Chill in the refrigerator for another 2 hours.


  • Precision is crucial in this recipe, so be sure to measure your ingredients accurately for the ultimate cream consistency.
  • Remember, patience makes perfect. Don’t rush through the steps; enjoy the process for the best results.
  • Keep a watchful eye on your puff pastry as it bakes to achieve the perfect golden hue without over-baking.
  • A sharp knife will ensure you can cut neat, beautiful squares, impressing your guests with your presentation skills.
  • Leftovers? They’ll stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, offering a sweet treat anytime you desire.
