Cream slices – a delicious light and airy vanilla creme encased by two thin and delicately crispy layers of flaky pastry – were enjoyed already by Franz Joseph I of Austria and his wife Sissi. The Cremeschnitte – A deliciously sweet Austrian dessert!



  • 1 pack of puff pastry
  • 1 l milk
  • 100 g cornflour
  • 200 g icing sugar
  • 25 g icing sugar with 1 vanilla pod
  • 3 eggs

Directions for Cremeschnitte

  1. Roll out the pastry and prick with a fork. Cut into two equal-sized columns and bake at 180 °C/ 350 °F for approx. 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  2. Add milk to cornflour and 2 tbsp icing sugar and vanilla sugar to the milk. Finally, mix the mixtures.
  3. Separate the eggs. Bring the milk-sugar-mixture to boil. Slowly add the cornflour-mixture to milk und simmer until creme is thick.
  4. Whisk egg whites with the rest of the icing sugar until thick. Stir in the egg yolks in the mixture and fold into warm creme. Finally, allow the creme to cool down.
  5. Evenly spoon over the pastry and allow the creme to cool.
  6. Before you serve, cut the remaining pastry in slices, but it on the top and sprinkle with sugar.


Leave it over night. Cream slices also tastes good if topped with an additional layer of cream over the vanilla cream – this makes them even creamier!
