Mille Feuille Basket

Mille Feuille Basket

A Mille-Feuille Basket is a delightful and elegant dessert made with layers of crispy puff pastry and a luscious filling, typically pastry cream or whipped cream, topped with a sweet glaze or powdered sugar. Here's a general recipe to guide you in making a Mille-Feuille Basket:


  • Puff pastry sheets (store-bought or homemade)
  • Pastry cream or whipped cream filling
  • Sweet glaze or powdered sugar for topping (optional)
  • Fresh fruits or berries for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the puff pastry package or to 180°C (350°F) if using homemade puff pastry.
  2. Roll out the puff pastry sheets on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.
  3. Cut the rolled-out pastry sheets into rectangular strips of equal width, about 2-3 inches wide.
  4. Take one pastry strip and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush it with a little water or egg wash.
  5. Place another pastry strip on top and press gently to stick them together. Repeat with additional strips until you have a stack of 4-5 layers.
  6. Using a sharp knife, cut the layered pastry into smaller rectangles or squares to form the individual mille-feuille baskets.
  7. Bake the pastry baskets in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes or until they turn golden brown and puffed up. Keep an eye on them as baking times may vary.
  8. Once the pastry baskets are baked, remove them from the oven and let them cool completely.
  9. Prepare your pastry cream or whipped cream filling. If using pastry cream, you can make it from scratch or use a store-bought version. If using whipped cream, whip it until it reaches a stiff peak consistency.
  10. Fill a piping bag fitted with a star tip with the pastry cream or whipped cream.
  11. Carefully pipe the filling into the center of each pastry basket, creating beautiful swirls or layers.
  12. If desired, prepare a sweet glaze by mixing powdered sugar with a small amount of water or use powdered sugar to dust the tops of the mille-feuille baskets.
  13. Decorate the tops of the baskets with fresh fruits or berries for an extra touch of color and flavor.
  14. Serve the Mille-Feuille Baskets immediately or refrigerate for a short time to allow the filling to set.
  15. Enjoy the delicate and delicious Mille-Feuille Baskets as a stunning dessert!

You can get creative with variations by adding flavored creams, such as vanilla, chocolate, or fruit-flavored creams, or by layering the pastry with fruit preserves or caramel. The Mille-Feuille Basket offers a beautiful presentation and a delightful combination of textures and flavors.
