    OMG these are so good. I used vanilla bean paste instead on extract and followed instructions on link. I made custard first and whilst it cooled i made pastry on lighly floured surface, custard was still warm when put in cases. They turned out perfect and will be a regular, so easy. Thank you

    Delicious!

    I took these to a friends house as dessert and they were a huge hit!  I would recommend letting the custard cool completely before placing the puff pastry in the muffin tins as the pastry dries out.  Otherwise, a new family favourite!

  • Yes. The custard gets harder

    Submitted by Aware on 13. January 2014 - 13:19.

    Yes. The custard gets harder the longer it cools for. I made that mistake the first time I made them too.

  • Made these - tasted great -

    Submitted by annem on 1. January 2014 - 22:12.

    Made these - tasted great - but didn't look so good - do you Hing that's because I was impatient and didn't let the custard cool?

  • Ok - so these instructions

    Submitted by Melanie Jacobs on 18. August 2013 - 14:54.

    Ok - so these instructions are weird. What I did was make the custard as above and just popped it once cooled into circles of puff pastry (not rolled just straight from the packet) and cooked them on 200degrees. Delish!! I also used vanilla bean paste instead of essence. Loved them

  • I've always used the Not

    Submitted by Melandrew on 21. April 2013 - 09:04.

    I've always used the Not Quite Nigella adaptation of the Bill Granger recipe. Basically the above but with more milk substituted for the cream. There's a missing step, which should be Step 2 for the pastry, which is to roll up the pastry tightly from the short end and cut into 12x1cm slices. Sometime I roll up from the long end and make mini custard tarts (using mini muffin rather than regular muffin tray). I also use vanilla sugar made in the TMX as the only other thermie tweak.

  • Sorry about that, I don't

    Submitted by SophieH on 8. April 2013 - 09:23.

    Sorry about that, I don't know whats going on with the recipe.  It really wants you to allow the pastry to defrost!!!  No matter how many times I remove the extra entries it keeps coming back.  I've included the custart instructions.  Please ignore steps 2, 7 and 8 until I can resolve it.

    Enjoy x
