Puff pastry mills

Today we share with you the recipe for this super easy dessert, it's delicious! Do you dare to try it?

Ingredients for 10 pcs:
- 1 puff pastry
- 9 oz semi-skimmed milk
- 0.9 oz gr cornstarch
- 1.5 oz of sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3 tablespoons of peach jam
- Sugar glass

- Simmer the milk with the cinnamon stick to infuse. After a while, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool to room temperature.
- Mix the egg yolks, sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl.
- Add the milk (previously removing the cinnamon stick) and mix well with rods.
- Pour into the same pot and heat over medium heat while stirring with the rods continuously for about 5 minutes (this step is very important, otherwise you can burn the cream) until it thickens.
- Cover the custard with plastic wrap (it should be in contact with the cream and without gaps so that it doesn't dry out) and let it cool.
- Extend the puff pastry sheet and cut it into squares of the same size.
- Then, make a cut in each of the tips of the square toward the center, without touching them, so that it looks like a four-leaf clover.
- Once the custard has cooled, insert it in a pastry bag and put a little in the center of each square.
- Take to the center one of the two points that each part of the square has to form the mill.
- Put another little custard on top.
- Repeat these steps with all the mills.
- Place them on a tray with baking paper.
- Cook it in the oven at 180º until golden.
- Take them out of the oven and let them cool on the rack.
- With a kitchen brush, paint the surface of the puff pastry with the peach jam.
- Sprinkle icing sugar on top.

*Tip for cookers: You can also sprinkle chocolate chips instead of icing sugar on the mills.

Bon appétit!
