Not rated yet

Ingredients    

(makes 12)
  • 45g flour
  • 6 yolks
  • 2 eggs
  • 600ml milk
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 250g sugar
  • Puff pastry (I use careme)
  • Ground cinnamon

Method
Mix eggs, flour and sugar together. Boil the milk and zest together, remove from the heat and allow to steep for a few minutes. Pour the milk over the egg mix, whisking constantly. Return to the pan and cook for a few minutes until it starts to thicken slightly. Strain. Allow to cool. Cut 1/3 of the sheet of pastry off, and roll out a little thinner. Sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon, and roll up into a scroll. Cut into 12 small pieces, and roll out very thinly. Place each piece into a greased muffin tin. Pour in the custard mix, and bake at high heat 200°C until just set and browned on top. Allow to cool before removing.
