Preparation time: 90 min
Could not make the same “skirt” as his as her uses a special ordered mould
Eventhough I tried it is very difficult/impossible to achieve.
50g salted butter
60g brown sugar
60g flour type 45
Mix the softened butter with the sugar and add the flour.
Lay on a baking sheet and make shape of 15 circles, and 15 circles 5cm, 2cm.
Store in the freezer until use.
In a pipping bag lay 15 large chou 6cm diameter
and 15 small 3cm.
The creamy butter salted caramel:
You need 30 g per large chou and 10 g per small.
105g caster sugar
40g egg yolk (about 2 pcs)
20g corn starch
150g salted butter
Hand whisk egg yolks and cornstarch.
Boil milk and set aside.
In a heavy saucepan, make a caramel using only sugar.
As Soon as it reaches a golden color, remove from the heat and add hot milk, very gradually. Remain cautious you can burn yourself.
Put it back to the hob and heat until you get a nice homogeneous texture and golden color. Remove from the heat.
Then add egg yolks, mix well and put it back on the hob.
Over high heat to thicken, stirring constantly.
Set aside in a bowl with cling film in contact.
When the cream reaches about 50 °, mix in the electric hand blender and add the softened butter gradually.
Place the cream right away in your piping bag with the nozzle of your choice store in the Fridge Michalak recommends you do the day before if not at least 4 hours before use.
For the edge made out of caramel,
I melted sugar dry with glucose 30% of the amount of sugar.
Once I reach a golden color I poured on a baking pastry square shape. Immediately, I apply another baking sheet on top and I press with my gloves to obtain a thin layer of caramel.
Straight after with a knife I shape a square.
Wait for a few seconds and it is ready to use.
First fill the Religieuse, make a small hole on the top of each Chou , and garnish generously with creamy caramel.
Cut the base of the small cabbage.
250g white fondant pastry
A pinch of powdered caramel color
A pinch of sugar canne
Heat in a double boiler until you reach 35 °. Mix well in order to get a smooth mixture.
If you have a silicone mold with half dome of 7cm, pour in each cavity, and place each chou immediately so that each Religieuse based form as a perfect shell on each of them.
Place the mold in the freezer for about 15 minutes and gently unmold each Religieuse: the result is magnificent.
Place caramel squares.
Add a small chou upside down.
Using a piping bag, fill each little chou with the creamy caramel, diced salted butter caramels from
