Papillon aux raisins

Place in a bowl, filter and leave to grow for 45 minutes at room temperature.

After 45 minutes, degas the dough and flatten it with your hands to form a rectangle. Place in a cool place to firm up.
Soften the 125g of butter and form a rectangle (1/2 the size of the pastry). If you don’t have kneading butter, you can use AOP Poitou Charentes butter.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pastry into a rectangle and place the butter in the middle. Be careful, the butter should be at a temperature of between 12 and 15°C and the tempera at between 6 and 8°C. Cover both ends of the pastry with the butter, without overlapping.

Tour simple

Make another simple turn and chill the pastry for at least 1 hour.

Shaping the tartlets

Roll out the pastry into a narrow rectangle, not too thin, and cut 4 strips from it (the length of the strips will depend on the mould used).

Tartelette croissant fruits rouges

Roll out the remaining pastry more thinly and cut out 4 circles the same diameter as your moulds for the base of your tartlets. Place each circle in the moulds. Lightly moisten the pastry with a brush over a width of about 1cm, then place the previously cut strip on top. Trim the excess pastry if necessary.

Leave to rise for about 1h30 hours. I put a little weight in the middle to prevent it from puffing up too much. Bake at 180°C for 15 to 20 minutes.

The syrup
✔30g water
✔30g sugar

When removed from the oven, remove the weight from the middle, place on a wire rack and immediately brush on the syrup. Leave to cool completely.

In a small saucepan, pour the 30g of liquid cream (minimum fat content 30%).

Turn off the heat and leave to infuse, covered, for 20 minutes. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Heat the cream again for a minute, then remove from the heat and add the gelatine. Pour over the melted white chocolate. Mix well and set aside. Whip the cream and fold into the previous mixture.

Peel and dice around 2 apples. I’ve chosen goldens, which hold up well to cooking. Remember to keep the apple stalks to decorate your cube. Place your leaf gelatine in a bowl of cold water. Pour the diced apples into a frying pan with the water and caster sugar. Fry for a few minutes over a medium heat. Add a little powdered cinnamon. Remove from the heat and add the gelatine, wrung out and softened.

Mix all the ingredients together. Form into a ball, roll out and chill for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper. Place in the freezer for a few minutes, then cut out using a square, fluted cookie cutter to the size of your silikomart mould.

Place on a baking tray covered with a micro-perforated mat. Place a second mat on top and bake in a hot oven at 170°C for around ten minutes. Leave to cool completely before handling, as they will harden as they cool.

Cube pomme

Crumble
✔25g brown sugar
✔70g flour
✔35g butter

Mix all the ingredients together. Crumble onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for a few minutes at 170°C. Using a square cookie cutter (the same size as your silikomart cube mould), cut out the crumble as soon as it comes out of the oven while it is still hot, then leave to cool completely. The crumble will then harden and you can place it on your apple cubes.

Remove your cubes from the freezer, place each one on a sweet pastry biscuit and then place a square of crumble on top.

I decorated with a real apple tail and a mint leaf.

You’ll have some praline left over for other recipes. It keeps very well in a sealed container. Just stir it well again before use, as the oil will rise to the surface. Fill the cavities of the silikomart half sphere x15 mould with praliné. Place in the freezer for at least 5-6 hours.

The mousseline cream
✔360 g milk
✔70 g sugar
✔3 egg yolks
✔15 g flour
✔120 g butter
✔15 g cornflour
✔liquid vanilla or better vanilla pod
✔120 g butter

Heat the milk and vanilla. In a bowl, combine the egg yolks, sugar, flour and cornflour. Pour in the hot milk, stir and return to the saucepan. Blend until the cream thickens. Remove from the heat, add 120g of diced butter and blend. Strain on contact and allow the cream to cool completely. In the bowl of a food processor, whip the remaining 120g of butter until fluffy. Then gradually add the mousseline cream, which has cooled to room temperature (same temperature as the butter). Be careful to use standard butter, not soft or low-fat, as it will harden in the refrigerator and hold the cream and the strawberry mould together.

Fraisier œuf de Pâques

Assembly
Place your entremet oval on your plate. Cover with cling film. Arrange the halved strawberries around the edge. Place your first sponge cake on the bottom. Brush the sponge cake with a syrup of sugar and rum or kirsch. In a small saucepan, pour 30g caster sugar and 30g water and heat until boiling. Remove from the heat and add a small capful of alcohol. Mix well. Poach some crème mousseline, a few strawberries cut into pieces, some cream, the second sponge cake soaked in syrup and then finish with a little cream. Smooth with an angled spatula and set aside in the fridge for at least 4 hours to allow the butter to harden and give your strawberry cake some hold.

Mix and leave to cool before pouring over your cake. Chill until the jelly sets.

I decorated the strawberries with strawberries and chocolate eggs.

The next day, melt the white chocolate with the neutral oil. Add a few dabs of milk chocolate. Mix well. Add a little vanilla powder.

Unmould the frozen entremets and immediately apply the chocolate icing. Using a wooden skewer, dip each dessert into the icing. Scrape the underside of each dessert over the rim of your bowl to remove any excess chocolate.

Place each entremet on a disc of puffed rice.
