Mille-feuille (pronounced meel-foy) is a classic French pastry that's known as millfoglie in Italian. Both names mean "a thousand leaves" due to the appearance of the cake's multiple layers of puffed-up, buttery pastry. The mille-feuille is a wonderfully appealing blend of flavors and textures; it's simultaneously rich and light, flaky and creamy. While it's not too sweet, it will satisfy your sweet tooth at tea time or over coffee.
Like a Napoleon, which traditionally uses almond cream, mille-feuille consists of crispy puff pastry layers filled with rich custard pastry cream. The top is then garnished with glossy royal icing and elaborate designs of chocolate or colored icing.
