After 9 months, I’m back with another Daring Bakers challenge! I’m so happy to be working on these again, especially since we had such a fun challenge this month :) We had to make sfogliatelle, which is a traditional Italian pastry. I knew it by name but had never seen or tried one before; over here it’s sold in just a few places, sometimes only at request.
Here’s my take on October’s challenge at the Daring Bakers: mille-feuille. I’m not sure how to pronounce that, but I can tell you that it’s delicious! The thousand layers are made with 3 sheets of puff pastry (which are weighed down to make them more compact and sturdy), and 2 layers of pastry cream.
