This recipe is from week 12 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Argentina is my 12th stop. Dulce de leche is a caramelized condensed milk that is popular in Argentine desserts. It can be made from scratch but it's a whole lot easier to use a canned version. This recipe comes from Rebecca Caro at "From Argentina with Love."
- Unfold the puff pastry and slice into thirds, along the fold lines. Then slice each third in two so you have six rectangles. Repeat with the other piece of pastry.
- Put the rectangles on a wax-paper lined baking sheet, leaving about one inch between pieces.
- Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 12 to 14 minutes, or until pastry puffs up and turns a golden color. Remove and let cool.
- Cut the tops off of each piece of pastry, so the two halves are about equal in size. Make a pile of top halves and a pile of bottom halves.
- Start by spreading dulce de leche on one of the bottom halves. Then cover with a second bottom half, and spread that one with dulce de leche.
- Now top with one of the top halves. Repeat until you've used up all the bottom halves (you'll have several top halves left over).
- Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
