All in the kitchen:discover the recipe for the very crunchy strawberry mille-feuille by Cyril Lignac


  • Preparation time:15 minutes
  • Cooking time:15 minutes
  • Recipe for 4 people


  • Arlettes:1 roll of rectangular puff pastry if possible; 150g caster sugar
  • 25cl very cold single cream
  • Vanilla icing sugar
  • 200g fresh strawberries, cut into small cubes
  • 12 whole strawberries, hulled
  • Icing sugar


For arlettes:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. On the work surface, place the rectangle of dough, sprinkle with caster sugar, add a little water and spread lightly with a brush. Form a roll then cut into 1cm thick slices. Then roll out each slice with a rolling pin to form an oval biscuit called an Arlette. Place these Arlettes on a baking sheet covered with a sheet of silicone or a sheet of parchment paper. Place a second sheet of silicone or parchment paper and then a second baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. When the cookies are done, place them on a wire rack to cool.

For the cream:

Using the mixer, whip the very cold cream with the vanilla icing sugar until it is well whipped. Add the diced strawberries using a spatula. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a fluted or plain tip and refrigerate.

For dressage:

On the plates, place a small spoonful of whipped cream then an Arlette, a generous dot of whipped cream then the strawberries all around. Place an Arlette again, then the cream and strawberries. Finish with an Arlette and sprinkle with icing sugar.
