Recipe from Russia: Napoleon Tort (торт наполеон)…

Sveta said I have to do a recipe on Tort Napoleon it is a favorite of Russians at the holidays and according to Russians it is now more Russian than French. Other words it is a Russian recipe whether we like it or not… :)

Use Puff Pastry for the crust layers. Just bake the puff pastry first and set aside until you combine all ingredients. Just bake them per instructions that come on the package. You need twelve crust layers to work with, plus one layer to crumble…

Now For the Custard Filling:
• 10 Egg Yolks
• 1 Egg White
• 2½ cups Sugar
• 6 tbsp Flour
• 6 cups Milk
• 1 tbsp Vanilla Essence
• 250 g Butter
• Finely crumbled Chocolates (Hershey chips are perfect)

How to make Napoleon Tort:
• Bake each layer (12 + 1) of puff pastry on a buttered baking pan in a preheated oven to 190 degrees C until golden brown for about 5-10 minutes.
• Remove and cool.
• Prepare the custard filling by heating milk in a large saucepan. Do not boil.
• Combine egg yolks, egg white, and sugar. Beat until creamy.
• Add flour and mix well.
• Pour the mixture into milk and stir until thick and creamy.
• Stir in vanilla and butter.
• Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Stir frequently to cool the mixture.
• Place cooked pastry layers in a platter and now pour an even layer of filling. Then lay another crust. Do this until all crusts (12) are piled on top each other with filling between all layers.
• Crumble last pastry layers on the top of the whole tort. Place a platter on top of the whole tort and put a book (Or small bag of rice!) for weight to crush the tort together. I use wax paper to keep things from sticking to the platters…
• Refrigerate for several hours.
• Remove and decorate with finely crumbled chocolates or liquid chocolate or shredded chocolate… (If using chocolate chips put them on before you press the tort. Then they will embed into the top and not roll off.)
• Serve chilled.

I promise you that this desert will create a stir at a family get together. It is rich and delicious…

It actually is better if you wait until the next day to eat it because all the flavors soak into the crusts overnight in the refrigerator. You do not have to crush the tort but I feel that it gives the tort a better look. So go ahead and make a tantalizing desert for the family of friends and they will think you are the best cook in the world after they get a taste of this delicious tort…

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually one thing that I feel I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

Over ten years ago I met the most wonderful Russian woman in the world! What started as friends on the Internet per e-mails and text messages, became a dream come true for this American...

I moved to Russia nine years ago and have never, one time, in all those years, regretted that move to Russia. In fact, I have realized over the years that Russia is safe, incredibly fantastic and a wonderfully explicit country to live and travel in...

I have been lucky in many ways and meeting a normal Russian woman whose main goal is not to leave Russia, that was a blessing in disguise, as I was the one who had to make the hard decision to leave my country. It was a decision that I have never ever regretted and it also opened my eyes to a whole new world of ideas and thinking's...

So welcome to Windows to Russia and stay a spell, sip a cup of coffee...

Walkum Talkum

The US led "War on Terror" is an open ended vehicle by which any people on the face of the planet who do not agree with America may be targeted by covert Western forces using methods like drone strikes, social media instigated color revolutions, assassinations, death squads, 'humanitarian' bombing, sanctions and blockades. America forgets that during their much lauded 'War of Independence', THEY were the saboteurs
and terrorists...

The current activities and narratives of the USA are solely based on their egregious efforts to expand their hegemony, no matter who is 'right' and who is 'wrong'...

The Kiev regime using the word 'Terrorist' to describe 4 million of your own citizens who don't accept a government installed by a foreign power is a prime example. While the world debates semantics, thousands of men women and children die and millions are chased away from their homes and nobody cares...
