The September 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Steph of A Whisk and a Spoon. She chose the French treat, Vols-au-Vent based on the Puff Pastry recipe by Michel Richard from the cookbook Baking With Julia by Dorie Greenspan.

I actually thought this was pretty labor intensive. Perhaps because of the temperature here in Italy. I was only able to do 1 or 2 "turns" before the butter would start to ooze.

My overall rating of this pastry... thumbs down. It really was not that great. My curry chicken salad filling was tasty, but not the pastry itself.

  1. they look very nice.

    I had to skip this month's daring bakers because of time issues (because of school) and because I have no rolling pin...just yet.
