  • 1 (1/2 pound) puff pastry sheet.
  • 1 1/2 cup (360ml) milk.
  • 1/2-2/3 cup nuts. Note1
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar or to your liking.
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • 1 cup (about 115g) whipped cream. Note2


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Cut the puff sheet into squares and place in a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Poke holes in each square using a fork and bake and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • In an oven safe dish (2 quarts size), break the baked squares into chunks.
  • Mix in nuts of your choice.
  • Heat milk in the microwave for 1 minute. Dissolve sugar in warm milk and add vanilla extract.
  • Pour milk over the puff pastry and let it sink in for 5-10 minutes.
  • Spread the whipped cream over the top and broil in the oven for 5-10 minutes until top is golden.
  • Serve hot with more sweetened milk on the side.


Note1: Use any nuts of your choice. Traditionally walnuts, hazelnuts and raisins are used. I’ve used pistachios, almonds and dried cranberries.
Note2: I’ve used half a tub of cool whip.
