Are you a true foodie and know what the term “Napoleon” means in the baking world? If not, please don’t fret, as I had to look up the term myself. I understood what it meant, but I wanted to see if this dessert falls under the true category of a Napoleon. What it means is a dessert made of puff pastry filled with pastry cream. So, you can see I have broken some rules with this dessert. I think to me it can also mean a light pastry filled with a cream and sometimes layered. So you see, we have a Napoleon. 🙂 Close enough!
I pulled this recipe from A Spicy Perspective. I cannot say my pictures look as glamorous as hers, but the dessert that I re-created was quite tasty! So, I thank the blogger for her wonderful recipe and share it with all of you! (You should really see her foods on her blog, WOW!)
- Pound cake
- Sea Salt (if desired)
1. Use cookie cutters on the pound cake. 2. Layer it! 3. Decorate it if you like with a little sea salt on top. SO simple and yet so delicious! I made a batch for a group of gentlemen last night and as petite as the dessert was (fit for a lady!) it’s also fit for them too. The guys approved and also commented that the bite sized portion was perfect after a big dinner.
