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

  • Author: The road to loving my Thermo Mixer
  • Yield: 32


A great bite size treat for any occasion.


  • Make creme patisserie from the EDC. You will only need 1/4 – 1/2 of the custard for this recipe.
  • Let custard cool (place damp paper towel over the top to avoid a skin forming).
  • Cut shapes out of thawed puff pastry. I use two sheets. I use bite size shapes as shown in the photo for easy eating.
  • Bake until slightly golden. Let cool.
  • Cut the puff pastry on half to have a bottom and a “lid”.
  • Place custard on one half. Top with a lid.
  • Sprinkle custard puffs with icing sugar.
  • Serve immediately or within an hour or two to endure pastry is still crisp.


  • Works just as well with a thick chocolate custard or experiment with different essences or flavourings.
  • Substitute icing sugar for drizzled white chocolate.
  • Don’t have icing sugar? Make your own easily in your Thermomix. Speed 9 for 1 minute gives me a great consistency for dusting.
