Preparation steps


For the crust: Combine pastry flour with sugar, egg and butter cut into pieces and quickly knead to a smooth dough. Cover in foil and place for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Then roll out dough on a floured work surface to about 26 cm (approximately 10 inches) diameter and place into a springform pan lined with parchment paper and cover with legumes (for blind baking).


For the choux: In a saucepan, bring to a boil the butter, salt and maple syrup with 200 ml (approximately 6 3/4 ounces) of water. Pour in flour all at once and immediately stir vigorously until mixture creates a lump on the pot bottom. Pour mixture into a bowl, add 1 egg and stir dough immediately until completely smooth. Then allow it to cool until lukewarm, then stir in remaining eggs one at a time.


Preheat oven to 200°C (approximately 400°F). First, bake crust in the oven until golden for about 25 minutes. Remove legumes and let cool completely.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread 1/4 of choux with a spatula on a pre-drawn circle with 26 cm (approximately 10 inches) diameter on parchment paper and bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes until light brown. Continue for a total of 3 layers then allow all to cool. From remaining choux, make small ornaments with a piping bag with a small tip on parchment paper for garnish and bake well.


For the filling: Whip heavy cream with cream stiffener and vanilla sugar until stiff. Rinse raspberries and pat dry.


To assemble, brush crust with raspberry jelly and put a choux layer on top. Spread half of the cream on, add 1/3 of raspberries and set next choux layer on top. Add last choux layer and cover with remaining raspberries and ornaments and serve dusted with powdered sugar.
