How to prepare the small squares with custard
Unroll the puff pastry and with a wheel cut out 20 squares (1).
Lightly prick the squares with the prongs of a fork (2).
Sprinkle the puff pastry with a light layer of icing sugar (3), then bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C (fan mode) for 13-15 minutes, until the surface will be golden brown.
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, then add the flour and mix well (4).
Heat the milk with the vanilla extract, then pour it over the eggs (5) and mix thoroughly. Transfer the mixture to the saucepan, put back on the heat and cook until thickened. Turn off and let cool.
Meanwhile, whip the cream very cold, then add it to the custard, mixing gently and with movements from the bottom upwards (6).
Place a spoonful of custard on 10 small squares and cover with the remaining ones (7). Keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Before serving, arrange the small squares in a serving dish and sprinkle them with a little icing sugar (8).
The small squares with custard are excellent freshly made; if there are any left over, they can be preserved in the refrigerator for a maximum of 1-2 days, covered on the surface with a sheet of transparent film.
