Oh, my Mille Feuille was a failure! I’m still reeling in from the failure and I don’t want to touch my leftover puff pastry yet. -_-
Well, at least the pastry cream tasted spectacular.
Don’t give up. Maybe try something different with your pastry & cream. It may not be a day for Mille Feuille.I figured out what went wrong as I watched it bake: 1) It compresses as it bakes (well, that’s what I think happens, anyway; none of the recipes I’ve read mentioned that would happen) and 2) I rolled it out a too thinly and unevenly (it looked like an archipelago as it baked; the areas that were too thin developed holes ((:). And some things went wrong as I rolled out the dough. Although, I was able to appreciate some of the areas that rose properly; I saw the layers in them and I was satisfied to a certain degree. ((:
These burgers don’t need meat to be awesome. (Veggie burger recipes over here.)
