Preparation steps

  1. Sweet pastry

    Cream the softened butter and icing sugar together. Stir in the eggs and mix lightly. Add flour, almond powder and salt. Mix until just combined and then rest in the fridge at 4°C. Roll out to a thickness of 1.5 cm and cut into strips of 22.5 x 2.3 cm.

  2. Choux pastry

    Bring water, milk, sugar, salt and butter to a boil. Remove from heat and add sifted flour. Mix to avoid lumps. Use a spatula to dry out the mixture on low heat for a few minutes. Transfer to the bowl of a mixer with the paddle attachment. Gradually add the eggs. Before adding all the eggs, scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl, then continue mixing and adjust the amount of eggs as needed. Pipe the choux pastry directly into 7 cm diameter pastry-lined circles and bake. Bake on a rack + Silpain at 160°C for 30 minutes with the oven door slightly open and the fan at speed 2. Size and Weight: 28g/circle piped with a plain tip size 12.

  3. Plain craquelin

    Mix all the ingredients until obtaining a homogeneous dough.

  4. Pistachio praline

    Roast the pistachios at 150°C for 10 minutes. Make a caramel with the glucose, water and caster sugar, cook at 185°C and pour over the roasted nuts. Blend in a food processor, add the salt and store.

  5. Oriental mix

    Mix everything together cold.

  6. Pistachio mousseline cream

    Heat the milk and pour it over the egg yolks that have been whisked with the sugar and cornstarch. Boil for 2 minutes, then add the butter, gelatin, and salt. Do not blend. Mix the pastry cream, oriental mix, pistachio praline, pistachio paste, then gradually add tempered butter.

  7. Pistachio crunch

    Mix all the ingredients together gently and press into a circle.

  8. Apricot compote

    Heat the purees to 40°C, then add the sugar mixed with the pectin. Bring to a boil for 1 minute, then add the gelatin mass. Let cool to 4°C, then blend and spread on the yogurt soft biscuit.

  9. Assembly

    Open the choux pastry from the bottom and garnish with the pistachio mousseline cream. Insert the frozen apricot compote and the pistachio crunch. Also fill the small choux pastry.

  10. Finish

    Coat the entire choux pastry with a spray gun and sprinkle with pistachio powder. Pipe the mousseline cream on top using a cut piping bag. Decorate with dried rose petals and violet pistachios.
