Cream, milk&egg yolk wash

  • Combine all ingredients.
200 g egg yolks 50 g milk 50 g cream


Apricot glaze

50 g hot neutral glaze 50 g Puréed apricots


Finishing touches

1 SQ icing sugar



  • Perform 5 single turns on the dough, respecting the resting time between each. Roll out to a thickness of 2.5 mm. Cut into 8 rectangles 13 x 37 cm and prick.
  • Cut the rest of the puff pastry dough into 8 strips 11 x 40 cm using a 6 cm-wide lattice cutter. Brush twice with the egg wash and refrigerate.
  • Spread 500 g of apple apricot compote on each rectangle, leaving a 2 cm border around the edges.
  • Using a brush, moisten the exposed pastry dough with a little water. Place the latticed rectangles on top, spreading them apart to be able to stick the edges of both together. Let rest in the refrigerator. Transfer to a sheet covered with baking paper. Bake in a 190°C deck oven on a perforated sheet for approximately 45 minutes. Let cool, then glaze with the hot apricot glaze. Cut into squares and sprinkle the edges with icing sugar.
