Total Time



1 (from 17-ounce package) sheet frozen puff pastry dough, thawed

Powdered sugar

Custard Sauce

1/4 cup sugar

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)

1 cup Land O Lakes® Half & Half

1/4 cup white baking chips

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, whipped


1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Unfold puff pastry dough; roll out on lightly floured surface, to flatten creases and create 10-inch square. Cut 12 stars with 3–inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Place onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-13 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool completely. Sprinkle stars with powdered sugar.

  3. STEP 3

    Whisk together sugar and egg yolks in medium bowl. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Pour half & half into 1-quart saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 4-5 minutes or until half & half comes to a boil. Remove from heat; gradually add hot half & half to egg mixture, whisking constantly until blended. Return mixture to saucepan. Cook over low heat gently stirring occasionally 10-12 minutes or until mixture reaches 175°F or is thick enough to coat back of metal spoon. (Do not boil.)

  5. STEP 5

    Remove from heat; stir in white baking chips and vanilla. Let stand 2 minutes; gently whisk until chips are melted and sauce is smooth. Cover; refrigerate about 1 hour or until cooled. Gently stir in whipped cream.

  6. STEP 6

    Place 1/4 cup custard into each serving dish. Top each with 2 pastry stars and fresh berries.
