Vanilla Slice Toasties Are Your New ISO Snack!
If you’re looking for a new snack to try while in isolation then look no further. Presenting the Vanilla Slice Toastie which is every bit as delicious as it sounds!
Vanilla Slice Toasties are quickly gaining momentum thanks to a hack shared by mum Anne on the Aldi Mums Facebook page. The process uses just four ingredients and her trusty Aldi sandwich press.
She writes: ‘Made these custard puffs from a second hand Aldi sandwich maker with good result. Perfectly fits a whole puff pastry sheet with no waste or fluffing about with circles.’
Omg! How good do these look? Sharing her recipe, Anne writes: ‘Beat Cottee’s instant pudding mix and 100ml thickened cream and 300ml milk (this ratio is only because I didn’t have enough cream but usually I believe people use the opposite ratio.) With thickened cream, the custard will be thick! 🙌 Cut puff pastry into quarters, fill with a tablespoon custard then another puff pastry layer on top. Close and cook for 5 mins. Can turn machine around if you want to make sure the other side gets touched.’
Who doesn’t love puff pastry? Not surprisingly, the food hack was met with comments of support from fellow mums keen to give it a try.
‘Ooooh yasssss perfect thing to satisfy my midnight cravings – gonna make them now,’ said one. Added another: ‘That’s actually really awesome. ‘You’re a wizard!! This is great!’
