Translated, milhojas simply means "thousand-leafs" and there are many versions of this pastry. The exact origin is unknown but this one is made with Spanish almond turron.
The combination of turron mousse, puff pastry and chocolate glaze does it every time. I had a second ...and a third!
Especially when the Callebaut dark chocolate chips are used for the glaze. It's a perfect match.
Plus 3 sheets puff pastry 30 cm x 11 cm. Bought or home made.
Putting things together:
Tools used: Hand mixer, bowls, piping bag with wide nozzle, silicone spatula, wooden spatula, bain-marie, knife, whisk.
