These easy croissant custard slices are very similar to vanilla bean custard slices since both are made with smooth vanilla custard, two layers of flaky puff pastry and thickened cream in between.

 

Do you know what is custard made from?

Custard is a decadent dessert made with eggs, milk, some flour, and sugar. Eggs are responsible for custard’s thick and velvety texture, but some recipes (such as this one) call for thickeners such as cornstarch.

 

Is pastry cream the same as custard?

Pastry cream ( crème pâtisserie ) is a custard thickened with flour or cornstarch. The starch stabilizes the custard and prevents it from curdling. You can use pastry cream in fruit tarts, pies, cakes, Danishes, trifles, donuts, galettes, and cream puffs.

How do you cut custard slices?

Cut with a sawing motion with the knife pointing down, slicing through the pastry without pressing downwards on it.

As it turned out croissants are the star of the day, let me add one savoury version to see how meat balls can match these beauties:
