Ingredients

Yogurt and White Chocolate Pastry Cream

Puff pastry

Whipped Cream

Pomegranate Syrup

Topping

Preparation

Yogurt and White Chocolate Pastry Cream

  1. In a saucepan off the heat, combine the sugar, cornstarch and flour. Whisk in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in the milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk, about 5 minutes, taking care to scrape the bottom and sides of the pan.
  2. Off the heat, add the chocolate and stir. Let melt for about 1 minute and whisk until the cream is smooth and the chocolate is completely melted. Add the yogurt and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the cream. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Puff Pastry

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 200 °C (400 °F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a floured work surface, roll out the dough into a 25-cm (10-inch) square. Cover with the cream. Sprinkle with the sugar. Cut the dough into nine squares.
  3. Place on the baking sheet. Bake for 17 to 19 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Let cool completely.

Whipped Cream

  1. In a bowl, whip the cream, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

Pomegranate Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the pomegranate juice and sugar to a boil. Simmer until the juice becomes syrupy, about 5 minutes. Let cool in a small bowl.

Assembly

  1. Cut the puff pastry squares in half horizontally. Garnish the bottom pieces with the pastry cream. Top with the raspberries and whipped cream. Garnish with pomegranate seeds. Cover with the top half of the puff pastry squares. Serve with a drizzle of pomegranate syrup.

Note

The puff pastry may be filled only a few hours in advance. Still crisp, they will be easier to cut and the pastry cream won’t spread out under the weight of the fork.
