Milhojas de Dulce de Leche–Dulce de Leche Napoleons

DSC01378 

If you had a dream pantry, what would be in it?  Would you have a few staples in a drawer, or maybe an infinite walk-in closet full of every food product imaginable?  The Perfect Pantry, hosted by the lovely Lydia, is a blog about all the items that would be in that ultimate pantry.  Lydia chooses a product, writes an amazing history of it (I always learn something!) and then makes a recipe with it.  On Saturdays, she does OPP (that's Other People's Pantries, BTW) and gives us a peek into how other folks stock their larders.

Lydia, who has been a great friend and mentor to me throughout the life of this blog, went on vaction (to fabulous Brazil!) and asked me to write a guest post for her while she was away.  I tried to keep in the vein of The Perfect Pantry, but of course, with a little Argentinean flair.  This is what I made!   It's a non-traditional Napoleon (as we would call them) made from puff pastry and dulce de leche, and it couldn't be quicker or easier. 

For the story, head over to The Perfect Pantry…I promise you'll learn something!

  1. Rebecca,
    how funny, as soon as i read the title of your post i suddenly realized that one of the most curious words of a dialect of the northern Italy (spoken in Mantua) must come the spanish word “milhojas”.
    So, the typical expression “l’è ‘na miloca”, that stands for “this thing is chewy (or sticky)”, must have been borrowed a couple of centuries ago when Mantua was under the rule of the Spanish crown.
    Nevertheless this pastry looks delicious!

  2. Funny that I’ve just posted an entry about dulce de leche myself :o)
    Today with my husband, we were planning on making puff pastry to fill it with dulce de leche, and basically make “milhojas”… as we say in Argentina, “el dulce de leche, me puede” :o)
    Cheers!
