Vanilla Cream Vol au Vent

Ingredients
  • 1 package Sunbulah Snack Vol au Vent
  • Egg wash (1 egg and 2 tbsp. water, beaten)
  • 2 cups milk
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. corn-starch
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp. berry jam
  • 2cups fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.)
  • Fresh mint leaves
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 ˚C
  2. Coat each Vol au Vent with egg wash.
  3. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and nicely puffed.
  4. Let them cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile, using a whisk, combine milk, sugar, and corn-starch in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Allow milk to heat so that tiny bubbles form around the edges. Whisk occasionally to keep corn-starch from clumping. Remove from heat when mixture has thickened and there are no clumps.
  6. Mix 2 tbsp. of the hot milk into the beaten eggs and then slowly add the egg mixture into the hot milk, whisking constantly. Return the pan to the heat until the custard thickens slightly. Do not allow to boil.
  7. Pipe jam in the cooled Vol au Vent pieces to cover its base, then fill with vanilla cream, and garnish with berries and mint leaves.
