I made puff pastry! From scratch! And it was awesome!

There’s something about dough that makes me happy. Bread dough, pie dough, and especially pastry dough. It does my heart good.

A mille-feuille is basically layers of puff pastry, pastry cream, and then icing on top. Apparently the recipe provided by the Daring Bakers group had the measurements wrong for pastry cream so that ended up a little bit thicker than I had anticipated but it worked out. The combination of the icing and pastry cream was definitely not my favorite, but it was something new for me and I loved that I learned how to make puff pastry!
