Occasion: Any
Cuisine: Australian
Effort: Average

500g puff pastry
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup cornflour
1/2 cup custard powder
5 cups milk
60g butter
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla

How to Prepare:

Have pastry at room temperature.
Cut pastry in half.
Roll out each to a 33cm square, then with a sharp knife trim to a 30.5cm square.

Place i square of pastry on a large ungreased baking tray, bake in a very hot oven (245C or 475F) for 5 -10 minutes or until golden brown.

Trim pastry with a sharp knife to a 23cm square.

Bake and trim the remaining pastry in the same manner.
Flatten puffy sides by hand.

Line a 25cm square slab cake tin with foil, bringing the foil up over the sides; this makes it easier to remove slice out when set.

Place 1 piece of prepared pasty in the bottom of the tin, flattened side uppermost.

Combine sugar, cornflour and custard powder in a heavy based saucepan, mix well to combine.
Blend with little milk until smooth, stir in remaining milk; add butter.

Stir mixture constantly over heat until custard boils and thickens, reduce heat, simmer for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat, quickly stir in vanilla, then stir in the beaten egg yolks.

Pour hot custard immediately over pastry in tin.
Place remaining prepared pastry on top of custard so that the flattened side touches the custard.
Press pastry firmly with hand.

Spread the pastry evenly with icing of your choice.
Place in fridge for several hours or overnight until set.
