Arequipe Milhojas is a delectable dessert that hails from Latin America, particularly popular in Colombia. This sweet treat consists of layers of crispy puff pastry, generously filled with arequipe, a rich and creamy caramel-like sauce made from sweetened condensed milk.


1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
Custard cream
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup of arequipe or dulce de leche


1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. Prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

3. Cut the pastry dough into 3 strips along the folding marks.  Place on a baking sheet and make a couple of holes in each dough with a fork.  Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Let it cool on a rack.

4. In a medium saucepan, place the milk and bring to a simmer.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and salt.

5. Gradually add the cornstarch mixture to the milk and cook, stirring frequently, for about 6 minutes or until thickened.  Beat the yolks and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring frequently.

6. Add vanilla extract and butter, and remove from heat.

7. Let cool to room temperature, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
