These are a great afternoon tea idea when friends are popping over. I always have these ingredients in the house so whipping them up is never too hard.

They make a great little bite size treat for afternoon teas, high teas, baby showers etc. They even look nice in a lovely box and gifted.  You can certainly make them a bigger dessert size if preferred.

Custard Puffs
Yields 32
A great bite size treat for any occasion.
  1. Make creme patisserie from the EDC. You will only need 1/4 - 1/2 of the custard for this recipe.
  2. Let custard cool (place damp paper towel over the top to avoid a skin forming).
  3. Cut shapes out of thawed puff pastry. I use two sheets. I use bite size shapes as shown in the photo for easy eating.
  4. Bake until slightly golden. Let cool.
  5. Cut the puff pastry on half to have a bottom and a "lid".
  6. Place custard on one half. Top with a lid.
  7. Sprinkle custard puffs with icing sugar.
  8. Serve immediately or within an hour or two to endure pastry is still crisp.
  1. Works just as well with a thick chocolate custard or experiment with different essences or flavourings.
  2. Substitute icing sugar for drizzled white chocolate.
  3. Don't have icing sugar? Make your own easily in your Thermomix. Speed 9 for 1 minute gives me a great consistency for dusting.
