Ingredients (6 servings)
- 1 box ready to bake puff pastry sheets
- 8 tablespoons dulce de leche, divided
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon sugar (see recipe below)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 4 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
InstructionsFor the puff pastry
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Remove 1 sheet of puff pastry and place on a plate. Thaw at room temperature for about 30-40 minutes, or until it is pliable.
Unfold pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface and cut into 3 strips at the folds. Sprinkle the strips evenly with 1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar.
Place the strips on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
Carefully remove the puff pastry from the baking sheet and place on a cooling rack and prepare cream filling.
With an electric mixer or stand mixer on medium speed, whisk heavy cream until stiff peaks form (be careful not to overbeat, or cream will be grainy).
In another bowl, whisk together mascarpone, cinnamon and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Gently fold whipped cream into mascarpone mixture until completely incorporated.
Now that the puff pastry has cooled, cut each into 2 layers lengthwise, for a total of 6 layers.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon sugar onto the three bottom layers.
Then spread 2 tablespoons of dulce de leche on four of the layers (keep 2 nice looking pieces for the tops). And spread the mascarpone filling evenly over the dulce de leche.
Next begin layering. You are making two "sandwiches", so each "sandwich" should have a bottom puff pastry and a middle one with filling, and the top one which is bare.
Place the two desserts in the fridge for a 1/2 hour to an hour to set before cutting.
Once set, cut each dessert into three squares with a wet serrated knife, for easier slicing. Top with strawberries or fresh whipped cream. Enjoy!For the cinnamon sugar
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon until well blended. Keep remaining mixture in an airtight container and use to sprinkle on french toast, oatmeal, yogurt, waffles, crepes, etc.
